Well, St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday…and whether you’re Irish or not, it’s still a day easy to get into.
We eat corned beef and cabbage every year, and also set leprechaun traps, wear green and speak in an Irish brogue all day long. It’s not annoying at all.
And of course there’s the famous Shamrock Shake, which I am sure isn’t Irish in the least…so it works perfect for me.
I decided we needed an adult version to enjoy along with the kids, because another thing it’s ok to do on St. Patrick’s Day is drink loads of green alcoholic beverages.
So here’s to being Irish for the day…
Boozy Shamrock Shake
2 cups vanilla ice cream
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp mint extract
3 oz Irish Whiskey
a few drops of green food coloring.
Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
