Welcome to our "Thirsty Thursday Guide to Summer-Worthy Drinks," where we are going to bring you a new drink to try weekly.

This week we bring you a drink that marries Vanilla Ice Cream (which should always be in your freezer) and Mint Schnapps! This drink is good for any time of year--to keep you cool during the heat of summer or warm you up with that minty flavor during winter. 

Ingredients :
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (I opted for non-dairy, but any will do).
Peppermint Schnapps
Vanilla Extract
Mint leaves to garnish
