Crème de Menthe Frappé
If one is on a yacht a simple lager beer just won't do. Elevated transportation requires elevated cocktails. And being that the Disco Volante of Thunderball fame is the finest yacht in the Caribbean one must expect the finest cocktail. But twist- how can Emilio Largo's Creme de Menthe Frappe be made in a fashion worthy of such a vessel?
Technique and brand are key.
A bottle of creme de menthe has several key indicators of quality that will guide you to the correct decision. The first of which is quite easily price, a bottle should cost the same as a base spirit, that is to say, a gin or a whisky- you'll be using it as a base spirit. The second is proof, generally speaking, higher proof indicative of less sugar which is turn offers a more honest spirit, unable to hide flaws. Finally but most crucial is the aroma, quality liqueurs has aroma whereas swill is drowned in a sugary mess from which no scent can escape.
The second and final ingredient in the frappe is crushed ice. The best way to achieve finely crushed, dry ice is to have one of your henchmen fill a canvass bag with ice and beat it with a mallet. This bag is called a lewis bag but when scaled up in size a bit, is sometimes called an "interrogation sack."
The fact is, if you find yourself of a yacht, you have likely left a trail of corpses in your literal wake. It is essential to enjoy a respite from your dirty work.
