Shamrock Shakes

If you don’t want to bother making a Guinness Stout Cake to conclude your St. Patrick’s Day meal, whip up some fun with these boozy, delicious, and colorful shakes. Ideally a malted milk mixer is the best option, but if you have a bullet blender, it will do. The beauty of these, besides their delicious taste, is that they can be made ahead and stored in the freezer up to and including the whipped cream topping and mini chocolate chips. Because of the alcohol content they don’t freeze solid, so you can store them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve them. I stored mine in the freezer with the straws in them so there was no delay whatsoever in getting them to my curious guests. Keep in mind that these shakes are adults only; enjoy responsibly!
Shamrock Shakes

1 ounce Irish cream Liqueur
1 ounce Crème de Menthe
1/2 ounce white Crème de cacao
2 to 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
Whipped Cream, for garnish

Mini chocolate chips, for garnish

Place all ingredients, except garnishes, into a blender and mix until creamy. Depending upon the size of your ice cream scoop, you may need to add a bit more ice cream. Serve in small glasses topped with a spritz of whipped cream and some mini chocolate chips.
Makes 2.

Pattie, I would never have thought to make these in advance and put them in the freezer! Love it! I usually wear myself out entertaining, and this would save a lot of wear and tear on the hostess!
