grasshopper 1

A grasshopper walks into a bar and hops up onto the counter. The bartender says 'we have a drink named after you.' The grasshopper replies 'You have a drink named Carl?'

Such a funny joke – now I have a drink for you once you stop laughing!  Smile 

I’ve never had a grasshopper before – but since I bought both crème de cacao and crème de menthe for another recipe (coming soon), I had a mix one up for my husband and I.   It’s a really great substitute for dessert – especially if you blend in some ice cream – yum!  Enjoy!

grasshopper 2


  • 1 ounce green crème de menthe
  • 1 ounce white crème de cacao
  • 2 ounces milk, cream or soy milk


Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass to serve.  Top with whipped cream (optional).
