Flying Grasshopper

There's no cream in this blended version of the Grasshopper, that famous mint chocolate dessert drink we all know, love, or hate. Blended ice changes the dark green color of the creme de menthe into the bright, creamy look of the original.

I like that the proportion of vodka is greater hear then the cremes. I'm showing off the Divine Clarity vodka in its MurLarkey distillery glass. This is the only Grasshopper served in an Old Fashioned glass and the only one with four parts vodka to one of each liqueur.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. creme de menthe
  • 1/2 oz. white creme de cacao
Combine all ingredients in a blender with cracked ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass.
