Friday Fun: Grasshopper

Drinks and Cocktails, Recipes

I know we’re still celebrating autumn, but mid-November also means that Winter is Coming. (Game of Thrones, anyone?) After all, Starbucks has already switched to their festive red coffee cups and serving up Peppermint Mochas and Eggnog Lattes, so why can’t we start mixing up some colorful and holiday-themed cocktails too? Cue the bright green, minty Grasshopper.

Grasshopper

Ingredients:

1 ounce green Crème de Menthe

1 ounce white Crème de Cacao

1 ounce light cream (or half & half or whole milk)

Ice

Shake well with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain and pour into a martini glass. Easy peasy!

Whip up a batch of these for your next holiday party and toast to the drink of choice of Raj on The Big Bang Theory. Enjoy what he likes to call a “sweet, green miracle” (to help enable him to talk to women). Cheers!
