One of my maxims when making cocktails is that creme de menthe doesn’t work with anything. A second maxim that I have is that I don’t like coffee, in cocktails or out. So what better combination than to have Kahlua and creme de menthe together, maybe throw some creme de cacao in there for fun. Today Dave is drinking on the edge, seving minty coffee drinkers everwhere at great personal cost.

  • 1 ounce Kahlua
  • 1 ounce creme de menthe
  • 1 ounce white creme de cacao

Shake over ice and serve up in a Martini glass.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Creme de menthe has a distinctive nose about it – its like cheap candy more than a refined cocktail ingredient.
  • I am surprised, this is not as bad as I was expecting, the cool mint is a pleasing aftertaste and the coffee is only hinted at.
  • Best served as cold as possible.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave Rating: 6/10 – really?!?
  • Strength: 4/10
  • Sweetness: 6/10
  • Best approximation is a chocolate peppermint candy – not bad.
