Nice thing about this drink is it can be strained over a scoop of shaved ice, snow cone style for summer, or just shaken with ice cubes and strained into a chilled cocktail glass straight up. In either version, it makes your breath all minty!
Breath of Mint
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce white creme de menthe
3 dashes Pastis or Pernod
Mint sprig with several leaves
Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, strain into martini glass. Float a mint leaf on top. For the snow-cone version, place a scoop of shaved ice in a large martini glass or deep old fashioned glass and slowly pour the shaken cocktail on top.
