Flying Grasshopper

Starting the week off right!

Here we have the Flying Grasshopper.

Recipe: 
0.75 oz. Vodka
0.75 oz. Creme de Menthe (Green, obviously)
0.5 oz. Creme de Cacao
Shake over ice
Strain into chilled cocktail glass
(Featured here in a coupe, because I love Coupes!)
Optional Mint Garnish – chose to leave it out, so it didn’t get in the way when I chugged this bad boy!

Review: Refreshing, cool, great for after-dinner, or to have first thing in the morning before things get too crazy. If you’re just sitting around sipping, I’d even be so bold as to make it a double. The Creme de Cacao adds a nice amount of sweetness, and this cocktail dates way back to the early 1900’s, so — you guessed it, it’s a classic, and a long-established staple here in the American South!!

Enjoy! See ya next time!
