Here's how to make this decadent ice cream and whiskey cocktail dessert

EXTRAVAGANT MILKSHAKES, AND delish ice cream floats are all the rage now - with places like Dublin’s Sweet Republic pushing the dessert boundaries.

So here at we went to Dublin Bar Academy to come up with a slightly more alcohol-based version – and try to figure out how to make one for ourselves.

And it turns out it’s pretty easy to come up with something very good

To start with – for one large serving – the ingredients you’ll need are:

  • Two or three large tablespoons of Salted Caramel ice cream
  • One shot of espresso
  • 40 mls of Irish whiskey
  • 15 mls of butterscotch liqueur

And that’s it


You whack it all in to a blender with a large scoop of crushed ice for 30 seconds


And there you have it, in all its creamy glory

Version 2

You can add some chocolate sprinkles and a mint sprig if you’re looking to class up the presentation a bit


And given the week that’s in it, the DBA came up an appropriate name for this creation: The St Patrick’s Reviver.

Simple – and absolutely delicious.
