Kansas City seems to have hit spring, but we know March doesn't always cooperate with the sort of warm, spring weather that calls out for a blender drink. Does it matter? This yummy cocktail will be good whether or not it's a St. Patrick's Day treat, and since the recipe makes 2, there's enough to share. If you really want to...
- 1/4 cup espresso
- 4 oz. Irish Cream liqueur
- 1/3 cup mascarpone
- 2 cups vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream
- 2-4 ice cubes
- 2 ladyfinger cookies, sliced lengthwise
- chocolate-hazelnut spread
- chocolate syrup
Combine the espresso, Irish Cream, mascarpone, ice cream and ice in a blender, and blend until smooth. Drizzle chocolate syrup along the edges of two oversized cocktail glasses, and pour the mixture into the glasses.
Spread a layer of chocolate-hazelnut spread in between the ladyfingers, and pass the cookies to dip in the cocktails.
