Deedledee’s Guinness Frappe
By L. K. on Mar 17, 2016 at 3:00 am in
In tribute to St. Patrick’s Day, New Hampshire-based photographer Meg Hamilton shares a playful heirloom recipe for Guinness-spiked milkshakes—or frappes, as they’re called by New Englanders. It was handed down by her beloved grandfather, an Irish-born welder from Massachusetts who used to whip up these coffee-flavored treats in celebration of the religious feast day and as a nod to his native roots.
“I have so many wonderful memories of him, and watching him prepare this special drink is one of them,” Meg says. “When he passed away, I inherited his old mixer and have been making the frappes in his honor ever since.”
Read on for the recipe. Sláinte!
Ingredients (serves 1)
♦ 2 big scoops of coffee ice cream
♦ 1/2 can of Guinness
♦ 1 generous squirt of coffee syrup
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
