Creme de Menthe Christmas Cocktail

December 4, 2019

A 5 minute cocktail for those of us who like efficiency and not having to wait to try tasty cocktails!!! If you follow my Insta stories when I reveal my weekly cocktail recipe, I like cocktails that are SIMPLE, so anyone can make them, but also look fancy AF!

I got some really elegant barware from Crate and Barrel a few weeks ago and had to try them out – peep this striped coupe that I’m currently a huge fan of.

This recipe was adapted from Delish.com, which they called “Drunk Andes” or “Drunk Grasshopper”… be forewarned, it is definitely a strong drink!

Now for the recipe…

Ingredients: Creme de Menthe liqueur, Bailey’s Almondmilk Liqueur (the Delish recipe called for Godiva White Chocolate Liquer, which I did not feel like spending $39 on, but will next time!), vodka, Cool Whip, and chocolate shavings

Step 1. In your favorite cocktail glass, combine your preferred ratio of Creme de Menthe, chilled Almondmilk (or White Chocolate Liqueur), and Vodka (I used a shot of each, then added more almond milk for flavor, and more Creme de Menthe for color!

Step 2. Spoon a dollop of Cool Whip on the side of the glass

Step 3. With a knife or peeler, shave your favorite chocolate (mine is semi-sweet or dark!) onto the whipped cream as generously as you desire – in case you didn’t notice, this recipe lends itself nicely to personalization!

Lastly, ENJOY this sweet, cool, wintry cocktail…or take a dozen pictures of it in front of the Christmas tree first, which is what I did!

Don’t you just want to lick the whipped cream???
