We always love the IDEA of a Shamrock Shake (so colorful! so festive!), but find the taste is kind of lacking. Is it just us, or do you prefer mintier than most? Shamrock Shake loyalists, please don’t hate, but we’ve definitely had a shake or two that tasted like plain-old-vanilla with food coloring.
Our take on this cult-followed, boozy shamrock shake recipe is made with actual fresh mint, and of course, plenty of booze. We use Branca Menta (Fernet’s minty cousin) for herbal mint goodness and Irish Cream… because — well, it is a St. Paddy’s Day drink and all.
If you’re looking to fulfill your Shamrock Shake craving with more fresh mint flavor and less green dye, you really need to try this boozed-up version!…
