Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us

(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#36: Alexander's Sister

1 oz Gin
1 oz Green Creme de Menthe
In a serving glass filled with ice, combine ingredients, fill with milk or cream, and shake

I don't know what Alexander's sister did to merit her own drink, but maybe she pureed a Girl Scout and poured her into a glass. That's about what we have here. By subbing in Green Creme de Menthe to an Alexander, we get a creamy Thin Mint in a glass. Is this for girls? Do they all like mint more than men?

This drink is basically melted mint chip ice cream with gin in it. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I don't see the need for it unless it is St. Patrick's Day. If we added a touch of something chocolate, we'd be set. Otherwise, move on and knock at someone else's door.
