Today is National Creme de Menthe Day. I will keep this post short so you can go an make a quick night cap in celebration. Creme de Menthe (tastes like mint) is a sweet mint flavored alcoholic beverage also know as a liqueur. One of the more popular cocktails or caztail as I like to call them made with Creme de Menthe is a Grasshopper, why? Duh the color. BUT, Creme de Menthe also comes in a clear color with the same minty flavor. One of my FAB brands for liqueur is DeKuyper as you will see this is the brand used in my Caztail.
Let’s get to it, here are two “caztails” that you can make to cap your night off in tribute to National Creme de Menthe Day.
1/2 oz Creme de Menthe (green)
1/2 oz Creme de Cacao
Half and Half cream
Chill your martini glass with ice and water while making your caztail. Add creme de menthe and creme de cacao with a splash or two of half and half. Shake, dump your ice water out of glass (should be nice an chilled) add caztail to the rim and sip!
1 1/2 oz Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
1/2 oz Creme de Menthe (clear)
1/ oz Creme de Cacao
Chill your martini glass with ice and water while making your caztail. Add vodka, creme de menthe and creme de cacao. Shake, dump your ice water out of glass (should be nice an chilled) add caztail to the rim and sip! It you want to get fancy, rim the glass with sugar.
Cheers and I hope you enjoy National Creme de Menthe Day by trying one of these caztails! Remember to ALWAYS clink and drink responsibly!
