Mocha Mint Latte

This is an improvised hot drink for the winter season, a hot version of the Mocha Mint that was so successful in combining the same flavors in a cocktail glass. If you like a latte, though, this is unbeatable.

I used MurLarkey cocoa whiskey for its real cocoa nibs infusion in whiskey. This is the brunt of this drink besides hot coffee, which is plenty flavorful on its own. Then just a bit of white creme de menthe (really sweet stuff) that negates using sugar.

Just a note: I have a ton of failed chocolate curls that I was able to garnish the whipped cream with. If you don't, just grate some chocolate on top. This was especially decedent, as it should be.
  • 1 1/2 oz. chocolate liqueur (MurLarkey cocoa whiskey used)
  • 1/2 oz. white creme de menthe
  • 4 oz. hot coffee
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate shavings
Warm chocolate liqueur and creme de menthe in a mug. Top with coffee and garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
