  • 5 cl Clear Creme de Cacao
  • 3 cl Green Créme de Menthe
  • 4 cl Cream

Process: Shake and strain
Garnish: Grated Chocolate or Nutmeg

I had given up on this one after trying the Rum verion (See attempt 1). Then I saw this How to Drink video with an alternative recipe. It’s much better.


Attempt 2

  • 4 cl Brown Creme de Cacao (Didn’t have clear)
  • 4 cl Green Créme de Menthe
  • 4 cl Cream

Process: Shake and strain

Much better than 1st attempt. Creamy. Minty. Chocolatey. What’s not to like? Maybe a bit too minty.

Idea: Try to use more Cacao than Menthe. Don’t know if it was due to the quality of the Menthe, but it was a bit too minty.

Attempt 1

  • 3 cl White Rum
  • 3 cl Green Créme de Menthe
  • 3 cl Cream

Good idea. I don’t like the aftertaste.. Maybe it’s the rum?
Need more to fill my glass (see attempt 1)
