This Boozy Grasshopper Cocktail is Vintage Dinner Ice Cream Drink Always in Style

Delight guests with this vintage, boozy Grasshopper ice cream adults-only cocktail. It is a dessert in a glass, with Crème de Menthe and Crème de Cacao blended with vanilla ice cream and served with whipped cream. 

This Grasshopper cocktail is a classic after-dinner adult beverage. Originally invented in New Orleans, where so many great cocktails were invented, it possesses Southern charm. The Crème de Menthe and Crème de Cacao give this cocktail a chocolate peppermint patty richness, making it easy while sipping this sweet sensation, to forget alcohol is involved.

Michaela believes memories are made in the heart of the home:  the kitchen. "Whoever is here, or whoever may stop by, there's always plenty; but nothing makes me happier than when EVERYONE is home, and I can look around my table and there is a 'seat in every seat.' Then my heart is full."
