Good! Used strong black coffee and creme de menthe. I drank some without sugar, then sweetened with a bit of chocolate syrup which was good, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Unfortunately, this wasn't very minty at all. It was very strong using 1/2cup of espresso to 1/2 cup milk and cream. Maybe it's better with black coffee but I'd halve the espresso amount next time or increase the milk and cream. I think most of the mint flavouring ended up coming from the peppermint stick used to garnish and stir the drink than the creme de menthe itself. It's okay as a strong coffee drink though.
