The 3 ingredients are Creme de Cacao, Creme de Menthe, and whipping cream. Oh, and ice. Always ice with cocktails. Seriously though, do you always have to call for someone to pick up ice? We sure do!Β 

The Creme de Cacao and Creme de Menthe is easily found at your local liquor store and often at your big grocery stores in the mixer aisles. You shouldn’t pay much over $15 a bottle for these brands. Completely up to you if you decide to buy the more expensive versions. Truly though, we haven’t found a great difference.
