The Grasshopper cocktail is one of the most flexible cocktails in which ingredients can be added or removed in order to get a flavour according to the needs of the drinker.
This cocktail makes use of crème de cacao and menthe and both of these can be introduced in the recipe with different ratios, allowing more flexibility in terms of the taste and presentation. The ingredients used are either creamy or they are green, and a mixture of these two creates a very refreshing and mouth-watering pale green texture for the drink.
You can also use other colours of cacao and menthe such as brown cacao and white menthe, which will create a different texture of the cocktail. If you wish to make this refreshing cocktail at home, then simply follow the step by step guide given below.
