The Grasshopper cocktail is an old classic that's very sweet and very simple. It tastes like a chocolate mint milkshake, doesn't have much of a kick, and originated in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Paul Gustings has mixed countless Grasshoppers, including at New Orleans’ Tujaque’s—reportedly the Grasshopper’s birthplace. His version sticks close to the original but draws more balance from a blend of liqueurs. Photo: Lara Ferroni. #cocktails #neworleans
