The ultimate cooler cocktail is billed as the drink that will cool down your senses. I don’t know about cooling them down, but I would say one too many of these, and your senses will be dulled at the very least.
I have tried to find out what might be in this cocktail by looking up drink recipes online, and I cannot find anything that describes itself as an “ultimate cooler”. But since the drink we were served was sort of like drinking the pretty blue Listerene that fools you into thinking it won’t taste like Listerene but it does anyway, I found a recipe for a drink actually called Cool Mint Listerene. That has to be this drink.
Basically, this drink is Blue Curacao and Peppermint Schnapps (or Rumpleminze – the German version). It is a gorgeous blue, and it reminds you of the cool, refreshing Caribbean water on a hot day. And then you drink it. And you realize you are drinking gasoline. Or turpentine. Or that pretty blue Listerene that fools you into thinking it won’t taste like Listerene. But it does. And so does this.
If you’ve had gastric bypass surgery – I beg you, please don’t waste drinking on this! If you HAVE to drink something, get a fuzzy navel or a nice strawberry daiquiri. Save the anti-freeze for your car. Other than the sugar in the alcohol, there’s nothing else in here that will harm you – no bubbles, no added sugar, no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Skip this drink of the day. You can gargle at bedtime.
