Mexican Grasshopper

An after-dinner treat with a minty, retro vibe!

  • Ice Cubes
  • 1 Part Kahlúa
  • 1 Part Crème de menthe (the green kind)
  • 1 Part Light cream
  • 1 Pinch Chocolate shavings
  • 1 Spiral Chocolate Sauce
  • Parts
  • Ml
  • Oz
  1. 1. Add the Kahlúa coffee liqueur, crème de menthe, light cream and ice into a shaker, or any vessel with a lid.
  2. 2. Give the ingredients a quick, hard shake (5 - 10 seconds).
  3. 3. Strain into a retro martini / cocktail glass.
  4. 4. Decorate with a generous helping of chocolate shavings and chocolate sauce (for the rim).
  5. Note: Some people prefer using heavy cream, instead of light cream. That works, too, and makes for a thicker, creamier drink. Why not try both?

This creamy cocktail is a coffee liqueur take on its more famous Grasshopper cousin and best enjoyed after dinner (much like an after-dinner minty treat) – a liquid dessert to top off any feast.
