I think I really need to start wearing glasses when I'm driving. I usually just wear them for reading or working on the computer, but as I was driving to work today I saw a sign at a local coffee stand that I thought said "Guinness Frappes". I thought, how cool is that! Just in time for St. Patrick's Day! Of course, as I got closer, it actually said "Gourmet Frappes". Hey, I've had garlic ice-cream, so Guinness Frappes seemed reasonable.
All of this reminded me of ye olde Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's. Does anyone remember these things? I don't think they sell them in most parts of the country anymore. But, in the spirit of "make it yourself", you can recreate your own with this recipe. No need for Uncle O'Grimacey, or his purple corporate relation, Grimace!
