Emerald Isle

The Emerald Isle is a minty gin cocktail that is a perfect green drink for St. Patrick's Day parties. Go green with your martini, just hold the vermouth and replace it with some crème de menthe. You'll have the Irish spirit in no time. While aromatic bitters are customary, mint bitters are an equally nice compliment and if you're feeling a little wild, orange bitters are quite interesting also.

1 teaspoon green crème de menthe
2 quick dashes of bitters
1 mint leaf
