The Grasshopper

Are you putting up your Christmas decorations soon?? Well, you should make these. A few years ago, these amazing Grasshoppers became a bit of a tree decorating tradition for my mom and me. So naturally, when she came to visit for Thanksgiving, and then we transitioned the house from Fall to Christmas, we broke out the blender. HELLO!!!

Grasshoppers

Blend together one shot of creme de menthe, one shot of creme de cacao, and a LOT of vanilla ice cream. We almost filled up the vitamix with ice cream. Once you blend them, give it a taste. You can liquor it up a little bit extra if you want! They really look prettiest in a martini glass drizzled with chocolate syrup, but let’s be real – martini glasses don’t hold a lot.
