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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
