Rejoice, lovers of mint and chocolate! Today is your day. The National Confectioner’s Association observes February 19 as National Chocolate Mint Day, and we fully support that. Not that we need a specific day in order to enjoy the goodness that is smooth, rich chocolate and refreshing mint.
It also happens to be Girl Scout cookie season, so we thought, what better way to celebrate than with a Thin Mint inspired cocktail?
The Thin Mint-ini:
- 1/2 oz. Creme De Menthe
- 1/2 oz. Frangelico
- 1 1/2 oz. Godiva White Chocolate liqueur
There’s no wrong way to enjoy this. Chill your liqueurs ahead of time so your cocktail will be as enjoyable as a Thin Mint cookie fresh out of the freezer (the best way to eat them, trust us). You can layer each liquid by pouring over the back of a spoon or mix everything together in a shaker. Pour into a martini glass. Sip. Close eyes in bliss. Cheers!
