Thank you VariaTEA for sending this sample my way! I was actually really intrigued to see it too because I’ve actually heard of the shot it’s named after – and not only that but it’s a shot that I regularly stock all the ingredients to make because I enjoy it so much.
I made it today at work iced because I thought the cooling mint would be really nicely suited to iced prep, and I’ve really enjoyed the last few mint/chocolate teas I’ve made iced as well. Surprisingly, it wasn’t really all that good though. Both the mint and the chocolate were really weak/flat tasting and just overall really disappointing. This is a REALLY rich/sweet shot when done properly so that’s what I wanted out of the tea.
In a last ditch attempt to make this more enjoyable I poured in some soy milk to hopefully enhance the creaminess factor. I have absolutely NO idea what ingredient caused it to happen, but for whatever reason when I added in the soy it curdled. Nothing in this should result in curdled milk! It was so strange, and obviously ruined the rest of the drink. Sorry – but this one just isn’t for me. I’ll stick to the actual alcoholic shot, thank you very much.
