Comment:

A a href="/cocktails/recipe/2674/grasshopper">Grasshopper with a splash of vodka, this creamy after-dinner cocktail is all the better for that vodka.

We also like, indeed are undecided if we prefer, this simpler but more alcoholic and calorific recipe: 1 vodka, ¾ green crème de menthe, ¾ white crème de menthe and 1 single cream.

Whichever recipe, this after-dinner cocktail is minty fresh with indulgent chocolate - reminiscent of a choc mint ice-cream.

About:

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.
