When we first blended our Evergreen Mint Tea, I was blown away by its extraordinarily minty — yet well-balanced — potency. But I confess, I don’t normally drink mint tea straight up, so I decided to do a little experimentation.
The results? My friends, this tea makes a Really. Good. Grasshopper. (Teahopper? Mintyhopper?) The creme de cacao and mint combo is nicely complemented by cream for the perfect after-dinner libation any time of year. Seriously, it is classic, downright refreshing, and tastes better than a peppermint patty.
- 1 ounce Evergreen Mint Tea, brewed strong
- 1 ounce creme de cacao
- 1 ounce cream
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well to blend. Strain into a glass and garnish with chocolate shavings or a mint sprig (or both!). Enjoy!
