A Second Place Cocktail - Grasshopper

Chocolate and mint is a match made in heaven, there's no disputing that. 

This classic cocktail is perfect for after dinner, with its sweet, minty and refreshing taste, you can't really go wrong!

The name derives from its green colour which is from the inclusion of creme de menthe. In New York in 1928 it came in second place in a cocktail contest, but this is definitely a winner for us.


  • 30ml heavy cream milk
  • 30ml cacao liquor
  • 30ml creme de menthe
  • Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass

 The perfect after dinner cocktail.
