Inspiration for this updated Mind Eraser hit when fellow D.C. bartender Dimitre Darroca dropped by Service Bar one night and mentioned his time spent in the Rumple Minze cabin (named after a brand of peppermint schnapps) at Camp Runamok, an annual bartender convention. Reaching for a bottle of Rumple Minze, Christine Kim knew that the spirit’s higher proof and strong mentholated flavor would need a powerful sidekick. She landed on Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee liqueur, combining the two spirits in equal measure, and topped them with soda.
- 1 ounce peppermint schnapps, preferably Rumple Minze
- 1 ounce coffee liqueur, preferably Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee liqueur
- soda water, to top
- Combine the first two ingredients in a Collins glass, then top with crushed ice.
- Insert two straws into the glass, top with more crushed ice, then top with soda.
