Posted in Mixology at 20:18 by Kathleen

Tonight we are back into creamy cocktails. It is a bit of theme for Christmas cocktails. Tonight’s color: Green. With the mint and raspberry garnish, it makes for a very pretty drink, if you can prevent the mint and the raspberry from sinking.

First let’s confirm that it is tasty. Mint, chocolate, and cream, with the subtle Midori, how could it go wrong?

Now let’s deal with that 2 mint leaves. If you are going to have any hope of keeping that raspberry on the surface, you need a sprig of mint to serve as a platform for the raspberry. Then take your picture, fast.
