Chocolate & Vanilla Mint Dream Cocktail

Diamonds

Ready for a cocktail that is a delicious sipper and influenced by the iconic boozy holiday,  St. Patrick’s Day? Well, I’ve come prepared with the perfect recipe. Smooth, sweet and green, this is a cocktail that you’re going to want to keep close to you. It may have a St. Patty’s aesthetic to it, but cocktails are made to be enjoyed year-round and the Chocolate & Vanilla Mint Dream Cocktail is no exception.

The Chocolate & Vanilla Mint Dream Cocktail is a mixture that’ll be celebrated for its richness from the very first sip. That’s thanks to the limited edition Baileys Vanilla Mint Shake liqueur. Baileys is a liqueur known for its creamy, velvet-like texture, which is exactly why I love using it in dessert cocktails. The notes of vanilla, mint, and a hint of chocolate scream St. Patrick’s Day, not to mention its the ingredient that gives this mixture that subtle mint hue.

Next, I poured in some vodka to add an extra boozy kick to your sipping experience. Vodka was the perfect go-to spirit due to its clean and crisp flavor, allowing the Baileys to remain a prominent ingredient but still balancing out some of its sweetness.

Adding onto that sweet factor we get from the Baileys Vanilla Mint, I went with a similar liqueur, creme de cacao. There are two varieties you can choose from with this liqueur: dark and white. For this recipe, white was the way to go since the dark creme de cacao would produce a totally different color then what I’m going for.  The creme de cacao offers a rich cocoa flavor which complements the other ingredients so effortlessly.

For an extra festive touch, rim your glass with frosting and themed sprinkles!
