Irish Shots for St Patrick’s Day is a chocolate mint drink. These green colored Irish shots are sweet, strong and easy to make. Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur gives it a creamy chocolate taste, while Creme de Menthe gives it a sweet, minty flavor and the green color of the Irish shots.
If you enjoy mint chocolate, you’ll find these shots going down very smoothly. We love the festive green color of the shot, and the gold rim sugar, too!
The recipe is the result of us partnering with the team at O’Shaughnessy’s Public House in Chicago, and their bartender, Chuy. He created these delicious chocolate peppermint cocktail shots that would make pretty Christmas party drinks. You can watch a video of us, on our Facebook page here, making these fun shots at the pub, too.
Rumplemintz – 1 oz
Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur – 1/2 oz
Creme de Menthe – healthy splash
Simple syrup (to moisten shot glass rim)
FIRST, GARNISH YOUR GLASSES
Add a tablespoon or two of the gold sugar to a shallow dish. Brush the edges of your shot glasses with simple syrup and then roll the wet glass rim around in the sugar. Shake off any excess sugar, then place the glasses in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set and chill the glass.
THEN, MAKE THE COCKTAIL
Put the Rumplemintz (peppermint liqueur), Irish Cream liqueur and Creme de Menthe to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, cover and shake well. Pour your shot mixture into the prepared shot glasses and serve.
