Tasting Notes

The vibrant minty essence of crème de menthe dances delicately on the palate, offering a refreshing burst of coolness that awakens the senses. This minty freshness is beautifully complemented by the rich, velvety notes of crème de cacao, infusing the cocktail with hints of luscious chocolate undertones that tantalize the taste buds. As the creamy vanilla ice cream melts into the mix, it adds a luxurious smoothness and a touch of sweetness, creating a harmonious balance of flavors that lingers long after the last sip. Together, these elements harmonize to create a cocktail experience that is both indulgent and refreshing—a true delight for the senses.
