Sure, we all love a bit of mint chocolate once it gets closer to St. Patrick’s Day (or any other time really.) Sure, all those mint chocolate creations are nice and all but no one is doing the obvious and making them BOOZY. As always, Red Lobster has come in clutch with its new boozy Irish Mudslide cocktail.
This new cocktail will scratch your itch for a seasonal treat, but it’s not your parents’ mint chocolate chip ice cream. That’s because it’s not only packed with mint chocolate goodness, it’s also full of whiskey. The best thing to be full of really.
Red Lobster’s Irish Mudslide cocktail is made with Jameson Irish Whiskey blended with Crème de Menthe and vanilla ice cream. It is served in a collectible Lighthouse glass and is topped with Hershey Chocolate Swirl, Red Lobster’s signature brownie, whipped cream and gold sugar crystals. There should always be a bit of gold on St. Patrick’s Day!
In case you weren’t paying close enough attention to that ingredients list, it’s not only a cocktail, but it’s also basically two desserts in one (a milkshake and a brownie!). Throw in some Cheddar Bay Biscuits and I think that’s dinner? Is that wrong? I don’t care!
St. Patrick’s Day is just about two weeks away, but don’t worry: This won’t be vanishing as soon as the green beer is put away. You can find this shake at participating Red Lobsters from now until March 29.
