FOOD – YOUR WEEKEND MEAL
Tomato & Red Pepper Soup
PAIR WITH A NICE Sauvignon Blanc
The Grasshopper cocktail is an old classic that’s very simple. It tastes like a chocolate mint milkshake, and has fallen out of favor for that reason. And yet, look at all those candy ‘tinis people just can’t get enough of. At least this drink has the good breeding to hail from the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Grasshopper Cocktail Recipe
- 3/4 ounce green creme de menthe
- 3/4 ounce white creme de cacao
- 3/4 ounce light cream (or single cream, in the UK)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in all ingredients. Shake until chilled, and strain the mixture into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
