 Recipe for Grasshopper Drink

Summer is here. And with summer comes the time to keep a #drinkydrank in your hands. Oh, who am I kidding? I do this year round!

I like this recipe for Grasshopper drink because of the minty flavor. It reminds me of the Shamrock Shake (in a way).

This drink can also be a non-alcoholic drink (by substituting a few ingredients, lol) But if you’re feeling it, you could always add a little {more} alcohol to take your Grasshopper drink to the next level.  And if you’re a closet mint lover like me, then this recipe for Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches ­ might just fancy your appetite!

This recipe calls for just a few ingredients, which makes it easy to make and fun to drink. If you’re a fan of grasshopper drinks, be sure to check out St. Germaine Grasshopper

    I have always heard that Grasshopper Drinks are delicious, but I haven’t gotten to try one before. I love minty things, so I am sure I would love this!

  11. Everything about this looks delicious! I LOVE mint. I’m actually going to a party with a bunch of old college friends this weekend and now I’m thinking I’m going to bring the ingredients to make this.
