Saturday is date day and since we've accumulated a large selection of alcohol and rarely drink, we decided it would be a nice time to have an adult beverage. This one caught my eye on Foodgawker.
Easy to whip up- I substituted Vanilla Vodka for the regular and left the vanilla out. My creme de menthe was clear, so added a few drops of food coloring. I'm not a fan of the new trend of putting whipped cream and a cherry on top either, so left that off. Very good :)
