A Grasshopper with a splash of vodka, this creamy after-dinner cocktail is all the better for that vodka, indeed it's arguably better with a splash more vodka (30ml/1oz vodka). However much vodka, this after-dinner cocktail is minty fresh with indulgent chocolate - reminiscent of a choc mint ice-cream.
