After Eight

The Mint Chocolate-covered sugar confectionary we love, in liquid form. 

Although it’s still a subject of debate, that Mint Chocolate tastes like toothpaste, we think it deserves a little more love especially the experience of treating yourself to a piece of After Eights after a meal.

We’re excited to share the recipe; essentially a Grasshopper variation without the same heaviness and striking green hue.

  • 1 oz homemade Crème de Cacao*
  • 1 bar spoon Branca Menta
  • 1/2 oz Decaf cold brew coffee
  • 1/4 oz Demerara sugar syrup
  • Garnish: Lemon peel rose with Mint bouquet
  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake.
  2. Double strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass. Garnish on a cocktail pick Lemon peel rose and Mint bouquet.
  • Homemade Crème de Cacao: In a pan, toast 70gr of Cacao Nibs until aromatic. Combine the toasted Cacao Nibs and 190ml of Vodka in a non-reactive container. Sous vide for 3 hours at 50°C.

    Filter through a cheesecloth the Vodka infused Cacao Nibs, and add 120gr of Dark brown sugar, a pinch of salt. Stir until dissolved.
