Green Crème De Menthe Frappé Cocktail

Crème de menthe is, as the name suggests, a French mint liqueur. It is usually made with Corsican mint, which is steeped in grain alcohol for several weeks before it is filtered and sweetened to create the final product. The Green Crème De Menthe Frappé resembles a minty, boozy snow cone, and can equally be recommended with ice cream, either as an affogato or whipped up to make a thick shake.

Recipe

2 oz / 50 ml green crème de menthe
Shaved or heavily crushed ice

Fill a flute or California cocktail glass with shaved ice (you can make shaved ice either by freezing a block and shaving it with a grater, or smashing ice cubes in a tea towel until they are reduced to ice dust and small pieces). Drizzle the crème de menthe over the ice and serve with a short straw.
