Happy Thursday! I hope y’all are having a great week so far! Since St. Patrick’s Day will be here this Tuesday, I thought I’d get you all prepared for your festivities with this lovely green concoction.
St. Patrick’s Day Grasshopper Ice Cream Cocktail
(found the recipe here)
5 Quart Plastic Bucket of Vanilla Ice Cream
3 Shots of Creme de Menthe Liquor
1 Shot of Creme de Cacao Liquor
1 Shot of Irish Whiskey
Place all ingredients in a large bowl.
Knead together by using two large ice cream paddles or spoons or use your stand mixer and knead using your bread hook attachment.
Once well blended, you can either serve or place back in the freezer to re-freeze.
If desired, top with whipped cream.
Adjust liquor to taste. For a darker green and stronger mint flavor, add more Creme de Menthe.
It was warm enough to wear sleeveless, shorts and sandals yesterday. Still can’t believe it!

And yesterday, we actually went swimming! You can imagine the excitement my children had when I told them we were actually going to the pool. The weather has been so warm and beautiful here the past two days, so we made the most of it. One of my sisters is vacationing here with her husband and son, so not only did we get to swim with them, we got to hang out with them too. Such a fun afternoon. I’ll be sure and include photos in next week’s Wednesday Whereabouts. This weekend it’s supposed to be cool and rainy, so I’m glad we got to get out and enjoy the nice weather before then.
Speaking of warmer weather, I’ve found some great one-pieces.
All under $100!
