What's in a Polar Bear Shot?
- White Crème de Cacao
- Peppermint Schnapps or white crème de menthe
White crème de menthe - you can use green Crème de Menthe if that is all you have but be prepared the drink will be green in color instead of clear. It is a great green drink for St. Patrick's Day.
Dark Crème de Cacao is similar in color to dark rum. It has a stronger dark chocolate flavor.
How do you chill shot glasses?
Rinse the shot glass with cold water and then place them in the coldest part of the freezer.
It should take around 10 minutes for them to get frosty.
