Chocolate Rum

The weather here is amazing. So after a tough morning biking through the hills on Sunday, I decided to kick back outside on the lawn chair with a magazine.

So a girly, chocolately, cream-based drink fit right into my afternoon plans. It was pretty strong, but wonderfully frothy and drinkable. The mint was pretty mild, actually. I imagine commercial Creme de Menthe would be more potent.

But doesn't this seem like a boozier Grasshopper?

Recipe:
1 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver)
.5 oz Creme de Cacao, brown (actually I used white, which accounts for the virginal hue of mine)
.5 oz Creme de Menthe, white (homemade)
1 Tbsp light cream
1 tsp 151 rum (Bacardi 151)

Shake with ice and strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.
