There are many strange holidays out there that seem to slide under the radar and go unrecognized. Normally I let these holidays pass by unnoticed, but today’s holiday caught my eye and inspired me to celebrate. Today my friends, is Chocolate Mint Day! I love chocolate, and chocolate gets its fair share of attention from the popular holidays (Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween etc.) so why not have a day to celebrate the delicious act of mixing chocolate with mint (if you’re skeptical think: Thin Mints, mint chocolate chip ice cream and the little chocolates fancy hotels leave on your pillows). I’ll be mixing up a cocktail that pairs these two ingredients (almost) as perfectly as a Thin Mint.
Mint Chocolate Martini
• ½ part Hiram Walker® White Crème de Cacao
• 1 part Hiram Walker® Peppermint Schnapps
• 2 parts ABSOLUT® Vodka
Shake all ingredients and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
