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.


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.
