The Bustanoby cocktail is strongly based on creme de menthe, and sweetened mint is the dominant flavor. But there’s a hint of orange and some bitters to bring it all together.

Bustanoby drink in cocktail glass

That makes the flavor a little more interesting and complex than straight mint. This is a great dessert drink to sip along on after dinner. It’s a nice alternative to the Stinger when you’re wanting something a little lighter and sweeter.


  • 2 1/2 ounces white creme de menthe
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 1 dash angostura bitters
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass.
