This works as a shot or as a martini. Be careful, either way, too many will bring the luck of the Irish. The measurements below are for a double shot, double to make a martini. We use St. Brendans for the Irish cream because it is cheap, tastes the same as Baileys and is the only brand on the market that uses actual Irish whiskey. You should too.

Peppermint Patricks

  • 1 oz peppermint schnapps
  • 1/2 oz light creme de cocoa
  • 1/2 oz Irish cream liquor

Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and serve.


About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Cheers. Shouldn’t it be green?

  2. Good looking long, cool drinks. Hurrah for St.Patrick, as long as it’s not when the Irish are playing against us at rugby:)

    Drinks are the door to the soul. Or the door to a good time. Or something. Maybe I need to drink a few of these before I try to wax poetic.

    This is “dangerous good.” It tastes so good and goes down so easy, that by the time you notice, you’re way past sober. Dangerous.
