Curated this. To bring it in line with the citation, changed 1 1/4 oz mint to 1 1/4 oz mint infused cream. Changed 2 dashes mint to 2 dashes mint bitters. Removed copyrighted caption and replaced it with instructions for making the mint cream.

Thanks, teaches me not to be hasty in my submissions. :)
