A true Grasshopper is a close cousin to a true Brandy Alexander. They are both comprised of equals parts creme de cacao, cream, and one other ingredient. In the case of the Brandy Alexander, that third ingredient is brandy. In the case of the Grasshopper, it’s green creme de menthe.
Our version at Pepe Le Moko is a tribute to the Midwest blended ice cream version, updated with a little Fernet Branca and local sea salt.
