Happy Hour: Young Grasshopper

Jul 2, 2010

If you like the light, refreshing flavor of mint then you’ll love grasshoppers.  Unfortunately, you will probably have to put up with an eye-roll from the bartender, but who’s he to judge?  Just make sure that you don’t drink to many and end up going home with the jerk bartender.

Tracy Reese Jade Dress ($295)

The Grasshopper

1-oz creme de cacao
1-oz creme de menthe (green, preferably)
1-oz light cream or half and half
ice
dark chocolate

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake well. Strain into a martini glass and, using a microplane, garnish with shreds of dark chocolate.

Makes 1 drink.
