If you’re anything at all like the team here at Madtini Labs you were digging into the Easter treats a long time ago. Peeps, jelly beans, gummi bunnies or chocolate creme eggs, they’ve all fallen victim to the sweet tooths of our hungry intoxicologists.
Here we are on Good Friday – we had alreadt posted our selection of Easter cocktails last weekend and we needed a challenge. The folks at Distillnation, a London distributor of fine spirits including absinthe tweeted “Looking for some chocolate inspired cocktails that could have some #absinthe in them … need to jazz up #Easter”. We knew we had our mission.
It wasn’t long before we found the Mystic Chocolate Cocktail. We decided to add shavings of dark chocolate to the rim just because we could. Cheers and Happy Easter!
- 1 1/4 oz of absinthe
- 1 1/2 oz of Baileys
- 1 1/2 oz of dark creme de cacao
- 2 dashes of Butterscotch schnapps
- dark chocolate shavings
Dip the rim of a cocktail glass in Baileys then turn the glass in a plate of shavings of dark chocolate. Set aside the glass in the freezer for a few minutes. Pour the absinthe into the glass, then slowly add the Baileys, then the creme de cacao and lastly the butterscotch schnapps leaving the liquids to from layers.
