Confessions of a Mixologist: Peppermint Grasshopper

If you're ready to mix and mingle and jingle... your cocktail... get ready for the Peppermint Grasshopper! It's making a comeback, kids. The Grasshopper your grandparents used to drink.

 

Why isn't ours green? We wanted to try something different with this vintage cocktail, so we used peppermint schnapps instead of Creme de Menthe. It doesn't have that green glow, but it still tastes just as fresh and minty.
