Sinful in pretty much every way, this is the shamrock shake to end all shamrock shakes. It’s an adult shamrock shake with not one, not two, but three kinds of booze. Plus copious amounts of vanilla ice cream. And whipping cream. And the cherry on top, is, well … a cherry on top.

Once again my guy and I donned our dutiful recipe tester hats and tried a few variations of this naughty shake until we came up with the perfect concoction. The sacrifices we make, I tell ya.

Flavors of cool mint, luscious vanilla, and delicious Baileys give this unabashedly adult shamrock shake oodles of Irish flair.

      My friend’s daughters call wine “mommy juice.” We can call this one “mama elixir.” ;)

    I would be passed out on the floor if I had one of these, I know it. But somehow I feel like it would be worth it…

      SO worth it. My husband keeps asking for more but I told him the post is up, testing is over! Maybe on Sunday…

    YUM! I was wondering what on earth I could do with the bottle of creme de menthe I have in my liquor cabinet — now I know. ;)

      It’s kind of a strange liqueur (it reminds me of the cold medicine Novahistine of my youth) but it works perfectly in naughty shamrock shakes. :)

Thanks for all of these wonderful recipes!!!
