A dessert you can drink

The Barnamint Bailey ice cream cocktail is a variation of other recipes Karl Milliron, the owner of Thirsty Fox Pub & Grill, has seen around. Milliron said the cocktail is fairly popular at the newer Albert Lea hotspot. He credits this to the cocktail not tasting too overpoweringly alcoholic, and to it being something to enjoy in place of traditional dessert.
1 1/2 ounces Baileys Irish cream
1/2 ounce green crème de menthe
3 Oreo cookies
2/3 cup or 5 ounces of vanilla ice cream
2 ounces half and half
4 ounces crushed ice
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until just combined. Pour into a wine glass or a similar stemmed glass.
Top with whipped cream and an Oreo cookie, then serve.
