It’s 5-O’Clock Somewhere: The Lucky GrasshopperMarch 14, 2014
St. Patrick’s Day is our kind of holiday. As spring beckons, it’s the perfect time to gather with good friends and celebrate good fortune “ and, sure, spike the dessert. With nary a drop of the dreaded green food dye, this festive milkshake gets an adults-only twist with vodka and shamrock-hued creme de menthe. Lucky? We’d certainly say so.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 oz. creme de menthe liqueur
½ oz. vodka
1 oz. milk
HOW TO MAKE IT
Combine the ice cream, creme de menthe, vodka and milk in a blender. Blend until thoroughly combined. Pour in a tall glass (may we suggest our Cumulus pilsner glasses?), top with whipped cream and garnish with the mint.
