Grasshopper Cocktail Recipe

The Grasshopper is a pre-prohibition cocktail that's creamy, chocolatey and minty. It's also green.

It was invented in New Orleans, a city more famous for its Po Boy sandwiches.

A bartender invented the drink at an iconic New Orleans bar.

Its two liquors are Crème de Cacao and Crème de Menthe.

Other than liquor, you just need cream and ice.
