The Weekly Cocktail Recipe: ‘The After Dinner Mint’

“An alternative night cap” for St Patrick’s Day, ‘The After Dinner Mint’ features Irish Artisan Dingle Original Gin; distilled with botanicals such as rowan berry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather. The London dry style gin is macerated for 24 hours then cut using the purest water from the distillery’s own well, 240 feet below ground.

Alternatively, the gin can be substituted with Dingle Vodka, teamed with Crème de Menthe, Crème de Cacao Brun and Crème de Cacao blanc. “A grown up take on mint choc chip”.


25ml Dingle Original Gin/Dingle Vodka

15ml Crème de Menthe

10ml Crème de Cacao Brun

10ml Crème de Cacao blanc

50ml Single Cream*

5ml Vanilla Syrup


Mint leaf, to garnish


Shake all ingredients (except for the mint) vigorously to chill and dilute.

Fine strain and serve straight up.

Garnish with single mint leaf.

*For a lighter version, or for those lactose intolerant, soya/almond milk can be used to substitute the single cream
