Day 25 of our 30 Cocktails in 30 Days Challenge: the After Dinner Mint Cocktail.
Remember those little flat squares of chocolate that, when you bite into them, there’s a weird disinfectant mint goo inside? This is nothing like that.
This cocktail was another drink on the menu for the leap year party we threw a few years ago. It was so popular we ran out of cream! It’s that good!
The After Dinner Mint‘s a party favourite but it’s also good as that bit of decadence in your life. It’s smooth, velvety and mouth-wateringly chocolaty. So if you aren’t sure what dessert to have or if there’s nothing sweet in the house for pudding, this is the drink for you.
Or you can have this as well as a dessert – that’s what Mrs Romance would do – and I don’t blame her!
How to make the After Dinner Mint Cocktail
Here’s what you need:
For each drink
- Double measure Bailey’s
- Single measure crème de menthe
- Double measure of single cream
- Block of chocolate to garnish
- Champagne bowl.
- Cocktail shaker, jigger measure, potato peeler
Here’s what you do:
- Pour the Bailey’s, crème de menthe and cream over ice into the shaker.
- Shake thoroughly to mix the drink.
- Strain into the champagne bowl.
- Use the peeler to shave slithers of chocolate over the surface of the drink to decorate.
- Sit back and enjoy!
If you want to make it even chocolatier, you can add a ½ measure of Mozart Chocolate cream liqueur. Yum!
