Review:

Why drink a mere Grasshopper when you could be enjoying a Flying Grasshopper? This creamy after-dinner cocktail is all the better for the splash of vodka, indeed it's arguably better with a splash more vodka. Minty fresh with indulgent chocolate - reminiscent of a choc mint ice-cream.

History:

A 1970s or earlier more alcoholic riff on the Grasshopper cocktail. Some, including Stan Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Bar Guide omit the cream: 1 vodka, ¾ green crème de menthe and ¾ white creme de cacao to make a clear emerald green cocktail.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 230 calories in one serving of Flying Grasshopper.
