Dark Mint Dream Coffee Cocktail
Lots of coffee cocktails are served hot, which is great when you want to warm up from the outside in on a cold night. But this particular drink offers something a bit more refreshing. Instead of serving it piping hot, this chilled beverage is a delightful way to wet your whistle with at the end of a long day, or on a lazy weekend afternoon.
It all starts with a mint simple syrup that is both sweet and fresh. As the name of this recipe suggests, it’s all about getting as much of that minty flavor into each sip as possible. And that’s not all – the mintiness of this drink is doubled when you add muddled fresh herbs, for a pow of brightness right on the good old flavor palate! Trust me when I say that you really need the extra mint in this recipe, to balance out the other flavors. Espresso and cream are also in the glass, making it rich and indulgent. When you combine these two ingredients, it feels like you are sipping on an iced latte, but with a lot more going on than simple coffee flavor alone.
The white rum is the ideal spirit to pair with all of these flavors, because it doesn’t overpower them. Acting as a subtle compliment instead, you get a strong drink without an overly boozy element. This is all topped off with a good dash of club soda for a little extra bubbly sparkle. It’s just the right ingredient to add to cut the richness without watering the whole thing down too much.
With a garnish of sweet whipped cream and fresh sprig of mint, this is a cocktail that you will want to make again and again. Like a mojito without the lime, you’ll love the delicious mix of flavors in this homemade adult beverage.
Planning a happy hour for two? You can make two servings of this drink in the same shaker. Simply double the ingredients and divide the cocktail between two glasses. Top each with an ounce of the club soda, and you are good to go. There’s not enough liquid that you need to worry about filling up the entire shaker, so you are safe to make it in double batches and shake to your heart’s content.
