Irish Car Bomb MILKSHAKE

     Who wants to get bombed?!? Isn't that what St. Patrick's Day is all about?? JUST KIDDING!
But seriously you are in for a real treat...
     I read in a sky mall magazine {about 4 years ago, on one of my many trips back to the bay area, while I lived in San Diego} about a Guinness milkshake. Don't be put off by the idea of mixing beer with ice cream. Have you ever had an Irish Car bomb? {a shot of Irish whiskey and bailey's, dropped into a pint of Guinness, and chugged as fast as possible before it curdles} It tastes just like a milkshake! So why not make an ACTUAL milkshake out of it!

For the Milkshake part we have...
2 pints of Ben and Jerry's Karmel Sutra Ice cream
1 can Guinness
1 shot of Irish Whiskey (i.e. Jameson)
  • Let Ice cream soften a little. Put into blender.
  • Start blending. Add 1 shot of Irish whiskey.
  • SLOWLY add can of Guinness


For the Bailey's Whipped cream...
1 cup whipping cream
2 tbs of Bailey's Irish Cream
1/4 cup sugar
  • Put whipping cream into electric mixer and start mixing on highest speed.
  • Once it starts to thicken up slowly add in baileys.
  • Keep whisking and slowly add in sugar.
  • Whipped cream should form slightly stiff peaks.

Assemble!
  • Pour milkshake into cold glass
  • Top off with whipped cream
  • Garnish with clover 

There you have it. A perfect treat for St. Patty's Day fun!
Come back Thursday for another Guinness treat!


In the mean time..
Stay crafty x0x0

  3. I'm sorry I just blacked out for a second. Or I will be blacked out after drinking this shake all night. Small price to pay for a car bomb, or ten. Love It!!
