Confessions of a Mixologist: Shillelagh Shake

 

Shillelagh Shake

AKA the Wisconsin Supper Club Grasshopper

 

The classic Grasshopper cocktail has roots in New Orleans, but it took our neighbors to the north to popularize the decadent ice-cream-based version. This is an adults only Shamrock Shake that packs the punch of a swift knock on the noggin with a shillelagh (in a good way!). It is, of course, a perfect way to cap your St. Patrick's Day.

  3. Top with a dollop of whipped cream; drizzle a little crème de menthe over the top of the whipped cream. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and garnish with mint sprig. Serve immediately
