2.5 shots out of 5
Imagine my disappointment.......Mint Chip ice cream is one of my 2 most absolute favorite flavors EVER!! I saw the recipe for this cocktail on a PDF emailed to me from Sandi (Thank You again). This PDF is from Pinnacle Vodka and has a lot of recipes on it (Sandi, the more I look at it, the more I'm realizing that the last third of the PDF is sort of a repeat of the previous cocktails, just down sized and renamed, haha). I sure do wish I liked this cocktail a LOT more then I do.
Side note, if you'd like me to email you the PDF, shoot me an email and I'll send it on over. Cocktailady@gmail.com
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. Not thrilled about it, I must say. The mint flavor takes over........in a way that it shouldn't in a cocktail. It kind of reminded me of a mouthful of mouth wash or something......yuck. It was worth a try though. If you look at my photo......ok......so I didn't have chocolate syrup, so I made a wet swirly inside the glass and sprinkled chocolate powder on it (TOTALLY SHOULD HAVE LET IT HARDEN.......PROBABLY IN THE FREEZER FOR A WHILE FIRST) and did the same on the rim. My not so bright idea ended up making it mix into the cocktail when I poured it in, making the cocktail look a "little" darker then what it should look like. If you look at the green color near the whipped cream on top, you'll get a better idea of it's color.
Here is the recipe for Mint Chip:
- 2 shots whipped cream vodka
- 1 shot creme de cacao
- 1 shot creme de menthe
- chocolate syrup (or hardened powder)
- whipped cream
In a shaker add ice, vodka, creme de cacao and creme de menthe. Shake it up real good. In a martini glass, make your own special designs with the chocolate syrup (or powder) and strain your cocktail inside. Top with a little bit of whipped cream.

Sandi, I'll definitely be trying more on that list! Thank You again for sending it!!
