Classic Drinks: After Eight Cocktail Recipe

Because this drink involves Irish cream and creme de menthe, we thought that an After Eight cocktail would be perfect to serve during St. Patrick's Day week. The only problem you might run into with an After Eight is deciding whether to start drinking it after eight in the morning or eight in the evening. Whichever you decide (and maybe it's both) you'll love it whether the sun is just coming up or going down. After Eight 3

After Eight Cocktail ¾ Irish cream ¾ Creme de menthe ¾ Kahlua Mint leaves for garnish if desired.

Directions This drink is perfect for layering. Pour the Kahlua in first, then the creme de menthe, and then the Irish cream. Or, mix them all together in a shaker filled with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with mint leaves if desired.
