Minty McFreeze

by Michele | April 16th, 2009 | Cocktails, Frozen Drinks

Typically, I am an on time sort of person.  I don’t like being late for events or making others late.  However, this post is almost a month overdue, as it is the recipe for my St. Patrick’s Day creation.  Granted, I forgot to take a photo of it at our celebration, but I could have done that the next day. No gold star for my promptness on this post.

So, I guess I will spin this one as best I can.  I am helping everyone to be ready for next year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration 11 months early. . .

A few notes about this drink.  It is a frozen drink, so it can be a little heavy.  I would suggest serving it as a dessert or an appetizer but not with your corned beef dinner.  Frozen drink + boiled dinner = very heavy!

This drink has an intense mint flavor.  Depending on your level of appreciation for mint, you can add more milk or cream.  Because of the mint flavor, I prefer it served as a dessert, kind of like the mint you receive with your bill.  To give it more of a dessert feel, you can top it with some whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

Happy early (or late) St. Patrick’s Day!minty-mcfreeze-2

Pour creme de menthe, creme de cacao, vodka, and milk in blender.  Add 6 ice cubes.  Cover and blend.  Add more ice, if needed, to create your desired consistency.

*For a more decadent drink, you can replace the ice with vanilla ice cream for a Minty McFreeze Shake.
