Grasshopper

Grasshopper with creme de cocoa and mint liqueur

This is basically a giant, boozy version of an after-dinner mint. There’s a lot of room to play around with the ratios if you want to put your own spin on it.

Since it’s named for a green insect, light crème de cacao and green crème de menthe are usually called for here. That said, any other mint liqueur will do just fine, including the clear ones.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
