To celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day this year, my husband and I have decided to throw a dinner party for some close friends. Our menu consists of traditional Irish fare such as corned beef and cabbage, Guinness mustard, and Irish Soda bread. For dessert, however, we’ve decided to go the non-traditional route with homemade Shamrock Shakes. They’re green, minty, and super delicious – the perfect way to end the night. Enjoy!
Homemade Shamrock Shakes
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
• 2 cups mint chocolate chip ice cream
• ½ cup milk
• Crème de Menthe, to taste (optional)
• Mint chocolate cookies, for garnish
In a blender, combine the ice cream, milk, and crème de menthe until smooth. Pour into clean drinking vessels, and garnish with crumbled mint chocolate cookies. Include a straw, and serve immediately.

To decorate my drinking glasses, I used green tags in the style Casablanca.
