I’ve had my fancy new blender for a few months now, and I’ve been using it to make all kinds of delicious and healthy smoothies. Very wholesome of me.

But this week, things took a turn for the worse. Or better. Depending on how you look at it.

I made milkshakes. With booze in them. And now I cannot un-learn what I know. At any moment I am a mere push of a button away from a dizzy-ing (literally) array of alcohol-laden, creamy, dreamy milkshakes. This could be very good or very, very bad!

Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I wanted to make a milkshake that would be perfect for the occasion. Coffee ice cream with Irish cream and Irish whiskey was the obvious choice. And with only three ingredients, how could I not do this.

I really wanted green and white sprinkles to garnish my Boozy St. Patrick’s Day Milkshake. I looked in three different stores and couldn’t find any. Apparently jars of green and white mixed sprinkles aren’t a thing. But I couldn’t give up the idea. And frankly, I become a little obsessed with it (personality flaw quirk). Frustrated, I came home and remembered that I had left over Christmas sprinkles. So I  picked out and discarded all the red ones and BOOM, I had my green and white sprinkles.

That sounds really lame. I probably shouldn’t confess that I sat around, sorting sprinkles by color. And you thought the life of a food blogger was glamorous. Ha!
