St Paddy's Day Milkshake

I am not a big St. Patrick's Day person...
Although I do like the green food..
This year I decided to make a green mint milkshake and this recipe turned out great.
My pictures aren't the best as it was early evening so not a lot of natural light 
and the more pictures I took, the milkshake kind of separated some but it still tasted good.

St Paddy's Day Milkshake

1.5 cups ice cream
1 cup milk (I used skim)
3 tsp creme de menthe syrup
1 tsp minced fresh mint
2-3 drops green food colouring
extra mint and andres creme de menthe thins, coloured sugar for garnish 

In blender mix ice cream, milk, creme de menthe syrup and mint until smooth.  If you want a thicker milkshake add more ice cream or thinner add more milk.  Add 2 -3 drops of green food colouring until you get the shade of green you would like.  To make green coloured sugar, add a drop of two of food colouring to sugar and mix.  Dip rim of glass into sugar.  Pour in milkshake and garnish with andres mints and extra fresh mint.
