I don't totally understand the hype of the Shamrock Shake. Shakes are awesome, and if you want a mint one, just go to Sundae's or Hoffman's or some other local ice cream parlor and buy it literally any time of year. That being said, who doesn't love green food during St. Pat's season?

If you want to liven up your shake, check out this great recipe from My Incredible Recipes:

Ingredients

  • 6 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Bailey’s Irish Creme
  • 1/4 cup whipped or vanilla vodka
  • 1/4 cup creme de menthe liqueur
  • 2-3 drops green food coloring
  • Whipped cream
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Green colored sugar crystals

Instructions

  1. In a large blender, add the ice cream, milk, Bailey’s, vodka, creme de menthe and green food coloring
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy
  3. Pour into serving glasses
  4. Add whipped cream to the top of each milkshake
  5. Top off with a maraschino cherry and a sprinkling of green sugar crystals

My taste in alcohol leans toward the sweet, so this sounds amazing! Bring out a tray of these and be a hit at your St. Patrick's Day party!
