If you just tuned into AWOP Radio, you heard my recipes for these drinks. Here's what they look like! Let us know how they taste and feel free to post your photos of the drinks you make on our facebook page.
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce creme de menthe
2 large scoops of mint chip ice cream
Directions: Add all of the ingredients except for the whipped cream into a blender
and mix until frothy. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream. For thicker texture (but a weaker cocktail!) add ice to blender.
Irish Mint Julep
3 ounces Irish Whiskey
1 ounce mint simple syrup
Fresh mint leaves
Directions: For simple syrup, combine 1 table spoon water, 1 table spoon powdered sugar, and 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves. Muddle until well blended. Pour the whiskey over ice and add the simple syrup. Stir well and garnish with mint leaves.
