Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day like a nice drink. This cocktail is amazing! Smooth, delicious and full of irish charm. Chocolate and Peppermint make this cocktail a great refined cocktail.
Peppermint Patty Cocktail
Rim your favorite stemmed glass with cocoa powder or colored sugar. To do this, lightly wet the edge of the glass then dip into your favorite rimming sugar or powder.
In a shaker full of ice add the creme de cocoa, peppermint schnapps and cream.
Come 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.
Add 1 1/4 cups milk.
Then add 1/4 tsp mint extract and 10 drops of green food color.
Blend until smooth. Top with whipped cream and you have a delicious Shamrock Shake Clone.
