I know I did this drink back in December, but a recent search for it turned up empty. I found it on one of my Instagram posts, however, and tracked it down from there.

The Diana really is a tingly and strong mint drink that is very suited to winter drinking like when I first tried it. I remember the experience well. It is all about the mint and crushed ice. The cognac float comes through as well. The whole experience is like a snow globe, which I think is the intention. Frosty on the glass, round, and very minty. I don't have white creme de menthe, but a cheap substitute (especially when cheap white creme de menthe is concerned) is peppermint schnapps. The point is that the drink can't be green.
  • 2 oz. white creme de menthe (peppermint schnapps used)
  • 1/2 oz. cognac
  • crushed ice
Pour creme de menthe (peppermint schnapps) into a snifter full of crushed ice. Float cognac on top.
