Thirsty Thursday: Adult Shamrock Mint Shake

Adult Shamrock Mint Shake

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

For the first time in, well, ever, McDonald’s will be serving its coveted and crazy-evasive Shamrock Shake at every one of it’s 14,000 U.S. branches. Considering our love for all things green, made with ice cream and Irish, we simply had to join the folks at the Huffington Post and Gothamist in celebration. There are many takeaways to be had from such a momentous announcement — requisite visit(s) to your nearest Mickey D’s for a minty, vanilla-y shake being the first, of course — but consider this: What if it was alcoholic? What if the Shamrock Shake were…spiked? Fortunately for, well, everyone we asked that timely question long ago. The result? Something we like to call The Irish Pirate. Bottoms up, folks. Adult Shamrock Mint Shake (Irish Pirate)

Ingredients

1 pint mint chocolate chip ice cream
1 teaspoon pure mint extract
3 tablespoons dark rum
Fresh mint to garnish

Directions

It’s that easy.
