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.
- 1½ part Green Mint liqueur
- 1½ part Light Crème de cacao
- 1 part Sweet cream
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
