Mint Chip Cookietini, easy St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipe for you today! Everyone ready for St. Patrick’s Day? Getting all the green clothes, food, drinks, etc. ready?? My first St. Patrick’s day idea for this year was a “bust” so will have to try it again next year. In the meantime, how about a Mint Chip Cookietini?? This recipe makes one large drink or 2 smaller drinks. It would also be cute in shot glasses or mini glasses! Lots of variation ideas, so read on! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all my Irish friends! If you’re looking for another St. Patrick’s Day idea check out my Green Velvet St. Patrick’s Dipped Cupcakes . For my not-so-Irish friends, don’t worry, I have some snacks, dinner recipes, and lots of other not-so-green things coming up in the next few weeks!
This drink is super easy with milk (or use cream, half-and-half, melted vanilla ice cream, or your fave dairy substitute), Pinnacle Cookie Dough Vodka, Pinnacle Chocolate Vodka (or Chocolate Whipped Vodka), and Creme De Menthe. If the drink is a little too strong for you, add a little more milk (or dairy). I garnished the edge of the glass with chocolate syrup (you could also use hot fudge or melted chocolate) then some shaved chocolate (or you could use mini chocolate chips or chocolate cookie crumbs). Next time I think I’ll try putting some shaved chocolate IN the drink too! Almost like a Thin Mint cookie in a glass!
Top the drink with regular or chocolate whipped cream and more chocolate shavings if you’d like. Mmmmm….
