Grasshopper

  • Base Spirit Creme de Menthe
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Mint
  • Served Up

Invented at New Orleans’ iconic Tujague’s Restaurant at the end of the 19th century, the Grasshopper has been a minty, cooling staple of Southern drinking ever since. Although, the green (from the Creme de Menthe) drink was tarnished by a snobbish stigma on account of it’s popularity with younger drinkers, the drink is a treat. The simple flavors, rich cream, chocolate, and mint, pair perfectly.
