Around the world in a couple of mouthfuls.

30ml Gin
30ml Creme de Menthe
90ml Pineapple Juice

Mixing Instructions:
Shaker with ice. Strain into wine Goblet

A chunk of pineapple.

Fresh pineapple with overtones of mint.
Initial Taste:
The alcoholic taste packs a bit of a punch, but it's cleaned up by the sweetness in the pineapple juice. You can't really taste the gin in the drink at all.
After Taste:
Who needs toothpaste? The peppermint in the Creme de Menthe really comes out at the end of the drink. It's almost like fruity mouthwash. Personally, I quite like the taste (but then I ADORE extra strength mints) My mother abhorrer's it, however (could be because she got ripped off her tits on Creme de Menthe years ago and can't stand it now) and dad's quite happy because he doesn't really like gin, but I managed to reduce the taste of it.

Best Drunk:
Possibly best on a hot day or after a big night out if you need to wake up/freshen up. Although, even after a few sips, I'm feeling the power of the alcohol in the drink and I'm not particularly cadbury.
