Recipe Notes and FAQs

Do I need to add chocolate?

To answer your question, no! This drink is all about personal preference and if you are not a fan of chocolate, then don’t add it. The reason why people add it, is because the chocolate blends perfectly with the mint flavour to give it that extra kick!

Should I use a blender?

Again, this is all about personal preference and the tools you have at your disposal. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, then a blender will work just as fine, just use a little bit less ice. If you don’t have a blender, a cocktail shaker will work just as well also!

History of The Grasshopper Cocktail

The grasshopper cocktail has become popular in recent years due to it being shared over social media during St. Patties day. This specialty cocktail comes out as a unique green liquid that isn’t found anywhere else. It’s said to be originated in a bar in the french corner of New Orleans – by the owner of the bar – Philip Guichet.
