Grasshopper | Cocktail Party

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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
