One of my favorite winter cocktails, and a random use for creme de menthe. It’s festive and fun for the holidays. Courtesy of Washington Post.
- 2 ounces cognac
- 1 ounce white creme de menthe
- Twist of lemon peel
Fill a mixing glass two-thirds full with ice. Add the cognac and white creme de menthe. Shake well, then strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with three or four ice cubes (not crushed ice). Garnish with a lemon twist.
