Shamrock Shake – From the Archives

Shamrock ShakeCome February every year, I am always on the look out for the golden arches to release the Shamrock Shake.  I love that minty, delicious and creepy green milkshake.  I dream about throughout the year.  So I decided to go and try to make it myself.  It was simple and now I can drink them all year long.

Homemade Shamrock Shake

Fill a blender with 2 cups of vanilla ice cream.  Make sure not to use the natural vanilla as the black vanilla bean bits will stand out in the shake.  It is a tad creepy looking.

Fill the blender with the ingredients

Add 1 1/4 cups milk.

Then add 1/4 tsp mint extract and 10 drops of green food color.

Homemade Shamrock Shake

Blend until smooth.  Top with whipped cream and you have a delicious Shamrock Shake Clone.

It is still Summer to me – Try a Mojito!!

I love mojitos.  The lime and mint coming together to mask the sharp bite of rum.  Yeah, I drink the cheap stuff.  Anyways Rum is good, but Rum with mint and lime is awesome!!!.  To take a line from Jim Brewer, Jackpot!!!  Hopefully he doesn’t get mad as that is his only line, but I gave him credit where credit was due. 

The Mojito - Sweet and minty, the perfect drink to mask your garlicy breath.
