Shamrock Shake

Thanks to social media my curiosity was piqued this week by a Shamrock Shake – I never had one of the famed beverages so can’t quite prove how this adult version compares but I can tell you I was surprised at how good it was. Really surprised!
1 part vanilla vodka
½ part Bailey’s Irish cream
½ part crème de menthe*
Half and Half or milk - add to your own taste
* The green kind to get the green color. If you have the clear version – add a drop of green food coloring.
Shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice. You could always mix them in the blender but then it would be called a Shamrock Blend and that wouldn’t be quite right.
