Green, fluffy, and a little bit “extra”, everything you’d expect from The Grinch himself.

Mint, chocolate, candy floss, vodka, gin, ice cream, this cocktail is festive as heck. Using The Lakes Gin, a classic English gin distilled with water from The Lake District National Park, and the ultra smooth, The Lakes Vodka, this glass of green goodness is the perfect after dinner cocktail.

Serves 1:

Ingredients:

  • 300g mint choc chip ice cream
  • 100ml milk
  • 50ml The Lakes Gin
  • 20ml The Lakes Vodka
  • 30g white chocolate
  • Christmas Sprinkles
  • Small tuft of candy floss
  • Candy cane, to serve

Method:

  1. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of barely simmering water.
  2. Remove the bowl from the pan and spoon the chocolate over the edges of your glass. Scatter the Christmas sprinkles over the chocolate and leave to set.
  3. Blitz together the mint ice cream, milk, vodka, and gin. Transfer the mixture to the glass and top with the candy floss and candy cane. Serve immediately.
