Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This Baileys milkshake is the perfect adult treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
I’m sharing one more Irish-themed dessert with this Baileys milkshake. We’ve had a crazy heat wave in San Diego these past few days, with temperatures reaching the 90’s. This milkshake really hit the spot.
Did you know Baileys is spelled without an apostrophe? It’s something I learned only last summer but keep forgetting. It just seems so weird without it, especially with the R.A. Bailey’s signature on the bottles (which is a completely fictional name!). Well if you didn’t already know those two tidbits hopefully you learned something new by reading this today.
Something else I learned recently. When you go wine tasting, you end up buying way too much wine.
This past weekend, I had a reunion with my group of close high school friends. It was so fun to be in the same place again, and be able to hang out for more than just a meal. We rented a house near Paso Robles, cooked food, celebrated Pi Day with a lot of pies, and went wine tasting.
The weekend went by far too fast and I’m missing them already.
Mr. K and I also ended up bringing home 7 bottles of wine! And considering the fact that we have never been able to finish a bottle of wine by ourselves, I really don’t know what we’re going to do with so many. In my defense, the wineries kept offering really good deals. For instance, I wanted to buy one bottle of a cabernet sauvignon and it cost $25. But if I bought 3, it was only $45. So of course I had to buy three right?
I guess we’ll have to have a lot of house parties to drink up all the wine. And maybe have these Baileys milkshakes to for dessert.
This milkshake is very simple: ice cream, Baileys, milk, and some chocolate syrup and whipped cream for garnish. Enjoy!
- 2 cups of vanilla or coffee ice cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 oz Baileys Irish Cream
- chocolate syrup optional
- whipped cream optional
Combine the first three ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed until everything is mixed. Transfer to a serving glass and, if desired, top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate before serving.
