Jade

This drink was interesting. I was expecting something minty, but the truth is .5 tsp of Creme de Menthe isn't that noticeable. It could be that my homemade version isn't as minty as the commercial version, too. But the lime, mint, and sugar were all pretty subtly balanced.
My homemade Creme de Menthe isn't super-green, so the first version looked mostly like pale lime juice in color, so I added a teensy drop of green food coloring. That was a bit much, however, and my "jade" turned a bit emerald.

Recipe:
1.5 oz Light rum (Bacardi Silver)
.5 tsp Creme de Menthe (homemade)
.5 tsp Triple Sec (Dekyupers)
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp simple syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
