RETRO COCKTAILS - Classic Grasshopper as Martini

My sister loved Grasshoppers in her twenties. The only reason I remember this is the pale green color of the drink - as a kid I thought it was pretty and looked like a green milkshake.

The Grasshopper is kind of a milkshake for adults - it's make with cream, has a chocolate minty taste and it really is the palest shade of green. It is also one classic cocktail that usually is served in a martini glass - so I'm more legit with this retro cocktail so popular in the fifties and early sixties.

After Raj on The Big Bang Theory ordered them on one episode it's possible this drink might come back into the public eye again - or maybe not . But it is a pretty decent dessert cocktail and very elegant looking when you add my personal touch of the mint leaf and chocolate shaving garnishes!

To make a Flying Grasshopper: Simply substitute vodka for the cream in the above recipe!
