Mmmm yummy! This Mistletoe Mint Cocktail is a refreshing holiday cocktail made with Crème de menthe and Crème de cacao. This is the perfect holiday drink recipe to make and enjoy while sitting by a warm and toasty winter fire!

Mistletoe Mint Cocktail

My grandmother used to give us Crème de menthe over ice cream when we were little. To this day I cannot think of Crème de menthe without associating it with my grandmother! We loved it as it added a fresh, minty taste to liven up our vanilla ice cream. I don’t even think we knew it was alcoholic.

This is very close to the classic grasshopper recipe (that is 1-1-1 and uses fresh cream specifically), I just updated with vanilla ice cream – a holiday season ice cream float for adults.

Crème de menthe comes in both clear and green. For Christmas drinks, I would think you would want the green color – both for cocktails and after dinner cordials! Make up a drink or two of this mistletoe mint cocktail recipe to share with your family and friends, and then have fun having them guess what the secret ingredient is. They’ll be shocked to find out that they are having their after-dinner drink and dessert all in one!
