Grasshopper Ice Cream Drink

St Patrick’s Day is coming!  Full of droning bagpipes, bouncy dancers and everything green.  Plus some things minty, like today’s Grasshopper Ice Cream Drink.  

Satisfying & light, a Grasshopper Ice Cream Drink makes a perfect dessert--sweet, rich & minty. There's always room for ice cream!

With festivities everywhere, two of my daughters set out in search of a mint shake and came back complaining.  They had to go to two MacDonald’s to find a working shake machine.  Fast food?  No sympathies from me!

But their excursion put my husband and me in the mood for something sweet and minty ourselves–and so I made my very first Grasshopper Ice Cream Drink.  I have always been a big lover of ice cream drinks, with their sweet richness and subtle depth of liqueur-based flavor.   But I’d never made one myself.

A good ice cream drink should stand up in the glass

A good ice cream drink should stand up in the glass.  This, I discovered, meant a lot of ice cream and not a lot of booze.  But the sweet minty flavor came through.  And homemade meant it could even be (mostly) organic.  Ahem.

      It is easy, Grace! All it took was figuring out the right ratios–started with too much alcohol and had a giant drink the first time (poor me)!
