This mint-chocolate-inspired cocktail gets a kick from vanilla vodka, Irish cream liqueur and cooling Pure Peppermint Extract. A peppermint whipped cream topping makes this drink a distinctively decadent delight.
Fill cocktail shaker 1/3 full with ice. Add first 5 ingredients; shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain into martini glasses.
Top each with a dollop of Peppermint Whipped Cream, if desired.
Peppermint Whipped Cream: Beat 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar and 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Peppermint Extract in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Makes about 2 cups.
Serving Suggestion: Wet outside rim of martini glass with McCormick® Pure Peppermint Extract. Dip glass in coarse sugar to lightly coat.
