We are on the count down now to Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s time to plan your holiday parties and get together with family and friends. This boozy green, minty shake has always been a hit when I have hosted Saint Patrick’s party events. After sharing a meal with friends the shake is a the ultimate dessert cocktail. You can combine the ingredients in a blender or in a large jar using a hand immersion blender. The baily’s adds additional vanilla and cocoa flavors to ice-cream that balances well with the crème de menthe. Try serving it in small shot glasses and garnish with a spring of fresh mint. Some versions also add vodka or switch out the Irish Cream for Whiskey.

  • (Shake ingredients)
  • 1 ½ cups vanilla ice cream
  • 3 Tbsp. Irish Cream
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Crème de Menthe
  • (Garnish ingredients)
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • Dash of vanilla
  • White chocolate (shaved)
  • Sprig of Mint

How to make it

  1.  Whip the cream with a dash of vanilla extract and set aside.
  2. Add the vanilla ice cream, crème de menthe, Irish cream and vanilla extract into a blender and mix until smooth.  Pour into a chilled glass and top with vanilla cream, white chocolate shavings and a sprig of fresh mint.  Serve with a straw!

Wishing you a Happy Saint Patrick’s month!
