This classic blended concoction is probably the most recognizable ice cream cocktail on the planet. Ice cream cocktails were everywhere in the 1960’s, and this critter was first blended at Tujague’s bar in New Orleans’ French Quarter. An after-dinner/dessert cocktail, it was named the Grasshopper for the green color provided from the crème de menthe. If you don’t have a blender or are prone to ice-cream head-aches, check out our delicious shaken-verion of this tasty cocktail. Cheers!
