On a hot summer day, nothing is more welcoming or refreshing than a minty green ice cream drink. And, this recipe is easily tweaked depending on the crowd you are serving.

Every summer my family spends a week up north in our log cabin. We’re talking about 16 adults and 6 children under the age of 5 piled into one cabin.

With that kind of chaos, everyone needs a treat.

I make these ice cream drinks for our daily Happy Hour in the cabin. I use plenty of creamy vanilla ice cream, chocolate, and mint flavors. My Blendtec blender makes quick work of the process so everyone gets his or her drink ASAP.

This is one summer ritual everyone in the cabin can agree upon!
