The Grasshopper

January 2014 001

Oh, Grasshoppers.  What’s not to love?  Ice cream, mint, and chocolate all in a glass.  YUM!  The drink is not technically supposed to have whipped cream layers, but that’s what happens when you mess up and dump a finished glass head first into another glass.

I used to order these in college at The Service Station.  I don’t think they’re on the menu, but the bartenders never seemed to mind, in fact once they decorated my drink with an Oreo on top – I loved that!
