Erin’s St Patrick’s Day Picks
Moonshine Creek Peppermint Patrick Liqueur
Sweeten up your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with this new addition to the small-batch chocolate liqueur series from Moonshine Creek. The family-owned micro-distillery based out of Carleton, New Brunswick recently released Peppermint Patrick – a chocolate-mint liqueur with a next-level flavour intensity and concentration that nearly puts it in the category of ‘food group’.
Prepare yourself for THE ULTIMATE SHAMROCK SHAKE (recipe below), or simply enjoy this in coffee, hot chocolate or add it to old favourites like Kahlua and Bailey’s for a fresh, peppermint kick. Quite possibly, the best option for this delectable dollop is to pour it over ice cream or a molten chocolate cake for a boozy dessert experience like no other.
Shake well before using (sediment is normal) and store at room temperature for optimal consistency of product. There are no animal by-products in this liqueur.
