      I couldn't agree more.

      I have done that 3 times, honestly, garnish (don't laugh) with keelbers mint chocolate cookie. No one knew and fresh mind. It was great.

        creme de menthe doesn't exactly scream Irish to me, aside from the fact that it's green. If you wanted to go the route of ice cream and liquer, maybe try Irish Mist.

      2. I like the previous poster's idea, and was also going to recommend something with creme de menthe...maybe grasshopper pie?

        1. An Irish oatmeal cookie! ... no idea if Irish oats are Irish or not, but it was the first thing I thought of.

          1. I would pour baileys irish creme over my icecream. or make brownies with irish cream frosting and whiskey in the batter. Or maybe you could just skip the brownies and have the baileys and whiskey on the rocks. Slainte!

              If you live in the NYC area you can go one farther when I was in grand central I noticed that Ciao bella has added a new special flavor to the gelato selection....Guiness!

                You beat me to that suggestion too! I once had it in Ireland. It was a Guinness cake with a bit of ginger and a caramel butter frosting. I still dream about that cake...

                  Irish coffee with real whipped cream.
