Shamrock Sippers – Irish Cream Cocktail
Irish cream is one of my most favorite liqueurs in existence. It’s so addicting and perfect for dessert cocktails. I love just sipping it over ice, but it’s perfect in so many cocktails, coffee, or my personal favorite for cold winter nights – hot cocoa. I love it all year long!
Of course with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I’ll take any excuse to buy a bottle for mixing in with cocktails or desserts.
These Shamrock Sippers are so tasty and boozy and deliciously dangerous to sip! In addition to the Irish cream, there’s a hint of mint from creme de menthe, a splash of vanilla vodka, half and half, a good handful of ice to finish it off!
Tips and Substitutions:
- The mint flavor in this drink is very subtle. You can add more of the creme de menthe and less vodka if you want a stronger mint flavor.
- If you don’t have half and half, whole milk or heavy cream can be substituted.
- Want to make the drink more fun and festive for St. Patrick’s Day? Try rimming the glass with chocolate syrup and green sprinkles. You can also buy cute green straws.
- If you want to make the drink even more decadent for dessert, swap the vodka for chocolate liqueur or you can also add chocolate syrup!
