Adult Peppermint Milkshakes

Is there anything that doesn’t go well mixed with Irish cream? If there is, I haven’t found it yet.

Irish cream is probably my favorite drink of choice this time of year when it’s cold outside and there’s snow on the ground. The rich, caramel flavor tastes like a white hot chocolate with an extra kick to it. Mixing in some ice cream and peppermint liquor adds a seasonal touch that puts this drink over the edge.

I’d recommend using an ice cream with a strong vanilla flavor like French vanilla or vanilla bean. If you really want a stronger peppermint flavor you can use a mint chocolate chip ice cream instead.
