Friday Food Feature -

Although St Patrick's Day was last week, I had to share this delicious recipe that is great for anytime of year.

Shamrock Shake
1 ¾ c  vanilla ice cream
¼ c.  vanilla vodka (or substitute regular unflavored vodka with ½ tsp. vanilla extract)
¼ c. Crème de Menthe
½ T grated dark chocolate + 1t for topping
a few sprigs of mint

  • Put ice cream, vodka and Crème de Menthe in a blender and mix until combined but do not over blend. (add more ice cream if you do). 
  • Using the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle the mint at the bottom of a tall glass. Pour the shake into the glass with a little room at the top. Stir in chocolate shavings until well incorporated. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top. 
  • This recipe makes two small shakes or one large one if you don't feel like sharing.
