I was on Twin Cities Live again last week, this time sharing really easy and YUMMY St. Patty’s Day cocktails that will make green beer a thing of the past.

(Special thanks to my friend Lindsey for the photos!)
Here are the recipes!

Homemade Irish Cream

1 1/2-2 cups of Irish whiskey, adjust to suit to your taste

1 cup heavy cream

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

2 1/2 tsp of chocolate syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix on high for 30-40 seconds.  Bottle and store in the refrigerator.  Keeps 1-2 months in refrigerator.  Makes 4 cups.



Orange Irish Buck

2 oz Irish whiskey

6 oz ginger ale

juice of 1/2 fresh orange

Fill glass with ice.  Add whiskey, ginger ale, and orange juice.  Garnish with orange slice, stir and enjoy.


Gold Sugar Glitter to rim the glass before you mix.

The Guinness Milkshake
4 cups vanilla or chocolate ice cream
1 14.9 oz can of Guinness, cold
