Be your own bartender and learn how to make a Polar Bear at home!
A Polar Bear, also know as an After Eight or Peppermint Paddy (due to it tasting like a York Peppermint Pattie) is a mint chocolate cocktail (usually served as a shot) that tastes like a York Peppermint Pattie or an After Eight wafer. It is usually made from crème de cacao and peppermint schnapps, although crème de menthe is a popular substitute. You can find the recipe for a Polar Bear below.
In order to make a Polar Bear, you will need the following ingredients in the following proportions:
- 1/2 oz of creme de cacao
- 1/2 oz of peppermint schnapps
Combine the creme de cacao and peppermint schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake the cocktail shaker until the metal of the cocktail shaker is cold to the touch.
Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into a shot glass and serve! The Polar Bear tastes just like a peppermint patty!
