Ingredients (1 cocktail)
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 oz green crème de menthe
- 1 oz clear crème de cacao
- whipped cream, for garnish
- Puree ice cream, the crème de cacao and half of the crème de menthe in a blender. Pour into a cocktail glass. Top with whipped cream and drizzle remaining crème de menthe over the top. Serve immediately.
