    Ingredients For Vanilla Whipped Cream

  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • Substitute 2 tablespoons brown sugar for the confectioners’ sugar and add 1 tablespoon Irish whiskey

    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.

    2. Optional rim garnish. Wet outside rim of martini glass with peppermint extract. Dip glass in green sanding sugar or uncolored coarse sugar to lightly coat rim.

    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.
