St. Patrick's Cocktail St. Germaine Grasshopper

St. Germain Grasshopper

This year ditch the same old same old cheap green beer for St. Patrick’s Day and level up to our St. Germain Grasshopper. Not only will you feel better about yourself but your taste buds will thank you. This is one delicious cocktail creation with all the right stuff. It’s a grasshopper cocktail through and through but with a twist. Yes, the usual suspects are clear and present. The minty Crème de menthe and the chocolatey cream de cocoa are here as expected. You’ll also discover to no surprise there’s an equal measure of silky heavy cream. But what comes next is what makes this grasshopper a bit different from the run of the mill version. I added a bit of St. Germain elderflower liqueur and just like that celebrating St. Patrick’s Day just got a little bit better and a whole lot tastier! Cheers!
