Not too long ago, my family and I dined at a restaurant called Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor. Have you heard of it? It was popular when I was a kid and has recently made a come back. While we thought the food was mediocre the dessert was pure heaven! I read their long list of desserts over and over and finally decided on a Mint-Chip Ice Cream Soda. So retro – but with a modern twist.
When that baby came out I was in sugar heaven! So much so, that I thought about that dessert for days. And then I told Desi about it. We decided that we could re-create that recipe and enjoy it at home whenever our sweet tooth desired. So we did!
First start with the fancy glass of your choice. For this photo shoot my sundae glasses were packed away for my big move, so I used these cute cute mason jar mugs that I bought a while back. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of peppermint syrup. Feel free to adjust this to your sweetness liking.
Next add a large scoop of your favorite mint chip ice cream. I’m partial to the thrifty brand.
Fill your glass with chilled club soda.
Add a second scoop of ice cream to the rim of the glass.
Swirl on some whipped cream.
Top with a cherry.
And last – devour!
With St. Patricks day right around the corner we thought this treat would be perrrrfect! With its pale green color, and it’s minty flavor you can’t go wrong! It is reminiscent of the infamous shamrock shake, but with bubbles and sass. Serve this up after your dinner of corned beef and cabbage and we guarantee your family will love you forever. ;)
Just be sure to have one of these bubbly, sweet, creamy drinks in your hand all day on St. Patricks Day to avoid getting pinched!
