|Dip, Baby, dip!|
|Voilà! The Thin Mint-tini|
Now we often get asked, "What should I be wearing while drinking one of your fabulous cocktails?" Here are two minty ensembles to get those fashion juices flowing...
|On Katherine: Cashmere sweater and leather belt by J.Crew, |
Silk top by French Connection
On Flannery: Cashmere Sweater by Ralph Lauren Black Label
1½ ounces heavy cream
1 ounce Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (plus extra for rim)
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract (We like Nielsen-Massey's because the flavor is fabulous and the label is just so chic!)
10 Chocolate wafer cookies (smashed with a rolling pin)
Add chocolate liqueur, vodka, chocolate syrup, peppermint extract and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously until a frost forms. Dip rim of glass into a plate of chocolate syrup and then dip into a plate of crumbled chocolate cookies. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a jaunty sprig of mint!
And remember: A-B-C. A=Always, B=Be, C=Closing. Always be closing, always be closing.
