1 oz. Creme de Cacao
1 oz. Creme de Menthe
Chocolate garnish (optional block or shavings)
I've always been a big fan of this trio-style cocktail, mainly because the flavours blend in so well and mint is one of my favourite flavours. The best Grasshopper I've ever had was actually from a bar in Vietnam, which is where I'm from lol!
Add all the ingredients besides the garnish into a shaker and shake vigorously as you will need the thick cream to mix well with the alcoholic ingredients. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass or even a pre-chilled martini glass then add the garnish.
"A grasshopper walked into a bar, when he sat down the bartender said "We have a drink named after you!", to which the grasshopper replied "You have a drink named Paul?!"
