french me, i'm irish

Because felix's daily starfish and waffles is now primarily an educational website, we had initially planned on posting a three-part, 5000-word treatise on St. Patrick, dude who drove all of the snakes out of Ireland. But after some sober second thought, we figured it would just be more fun to drink. Erin go Bragh!

This St. Patrick's Day, get sloshed in style with the silky, smooth Shamrockhopper. Recommended by 4 out of 5 Irish bears.

Yes, it may be St. Patrick's Day but, please, show your liver a little dignity. Instead of torturing it with the heinous crime that is green beer, how about mercifully euthanizing it with something a little more divine? May we suggest the Shamrockhopper ... a minty, white-chocolatey drink that's as velvety as it is high in calcium. What better way to show you're not English?

0.67 oz. Crème de Menthe (Green)
0.67 oz. Crème de Cacao (White)
0.67 oz. Baileys Irish Creme
4 to 5 oz. Skim Milk

In the order listed, pour the above ingredients over ice in an old-fashioned glass. Stir. Sip. Make a wish. Get lucky!


  1. Looks yummy. I must try it...soon!!!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    (Do you guys celebrate St. Patti's in Canada???)

  2. Happy St. Patty's and sweet, milky beverages for all!

  3. Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day!

    Rebecca, you bet we do - in fact, in the Atlantic province of Newfoundland and Labrador where almost everyone seems to be of Irish descent, St. Patty's Day is actually an official holiday just like it is Ireland.

    -c, you know it!

  4. I notice you posted this at 1:01 odd...???
