Your new lucky charm! Whitney Cummings is all about celebrating her Irish heritage — so she showed Us how to make her favorite festive cocktail in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
“It’s the perfect addition to any [party] with your crew,” the Whitney star, 40, revealed in the newest issue of Us Weekly, labeling herself a “partly Irish comedian and self-pro-claimed St. Patrick’s Day expert.”
While the Made of Honor actress told Us in September 2020 that she’s a fan of the darker spirits — “When I drink whiskey, I start firing people who don’t work for me” — her Vanilla Mint Shake recipe uses Baileys for a perfectly subtle Irish twist.
“I’m making sure that everyone is prepared to celebrate the Irish way,” she explains to Us.
Cummings is a big fan of anything sweet — her go-to treat is jelly beans, telling Us that she prefers the buttered popcorn flavor above all else – so there’s no need for beer when a delicious option filled with sugary goodness is available.
We’ll cheers to that!
