Ingredients For Vanilla Whipped Cream
1. Make whipped cream. In a medium bowl, beat whipped cream ingredients with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Makes about 2 cups.

3. Mix and shake. Fill cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add first 4 ingredients; shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain into martini glass.
4. Garnish. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and optional green sprinkles.
The toast: sláinte (SLON-teh), or “health” in Gaelic.
