Everyone loves this Grasshopper drink recipe! The classic mint chocolate dessert cocktail pairs crème de menthe and chocolate liqueur for a creamy, smooth sip.


  • 1 1/2 ounces* crème de cacao
  • 1 1/2 ounces crème de menthe
  • 2 ounces heavy cream**
  • For the garnish: Shaved chocolate (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add 2 handfuls of ice and shake until cold. 
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass. Top with shaved chocolate if desired. 


*1 ounces = 2 tablespoons

**Want to make a frozen grasshopper? Substitute 2 scoops vanilla ice cream for the heavy cream and blend in a blender. To make 4 servings, use 3/4 cup each of creme de cacao and creme de menthe, and 8 scoops ice cream.
