Minty Green Russian


I know this isn't exactly Irish but, heck, neither am I.  But I still celebrated this green holiday with a green drink by turning a classic White Russian into a Minty Green Russian for my St. Patrick's Day drinking pleasure.  This beverage not only got me into the festive spirit but also acted as an excellent breath mint!  It only takes ONE drop of mint extract to get this drink tasting mighty minty and that one drop is all you need.  I hope you all had a fun and safe St. Patty's Day. Cheers!

What you'll need: per drink

1 jigger of Vodka
2 jiggers of Kahlua
1 drop of mint extract
1/2 cup milk
4 drops green food coloring
 
Fill your glass with ice, pour in the Vodka, Kahlua and mint extract.  Mix with a spoon.  In a separate glass filled with milk, poor in the drops of green food coloring and mix.  For a pretty presentation, slowly pour the milk mixture over the back of a spoon into the Vodka and Kahlua mixture.  This trick prevents the milk from mixing into the dark bottom layer.  Serve and then let your guests give it a stir before drinking.

  2. Great post. I learn something tougher on different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to learn content from other writers and observe somewhat one thing from their store.
