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.
