Grasshopper recipe

The Grasshopper is a classic cocktail that dates back to the 1920s. It is known for its unique flavor combination of mint and chocolate, and its green color makes it particularly popular. Originally the drink was made with creme de menthe, creme de cacao and cream, but there are many variations today. One of the biggest advantages of the drink is its versatility – it can be served in a number of different ways, from a simple cocktail served in a glass, to a more complex dessert drink with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
