Tall glass of a boozy Irish mint shake - an adult version of a Shamrock shake

Forget about those ‘golden arches’.  This boozy Irish mint shake is the adult copycat of the Shamrock shake you grew up drinking.  It makes a delicious end to a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day full of celebration.

I mean who can pass on a boozy dessert?  Not this girl.


  • Ice cream – I like using mint chocolate chip for an extra boost of minty goodness and chocolate.
  • Vodka – either vanilla vodka, cake vodka, or plain vodka
  • Irish Cream Liqueur – I used Baily’s Irish Cream, but any will work beautifully
  • Vanilla extract – omit if you use a flavored vodka
  • Chocolate covered mint cookies – I used Thin Mints, but mint Oreos or any other chocolate mint cookies will do
  • Whipped cream – I used the stuff in a can
  • Fresh mint – just to make it pretty
