Making a grasshopper ice cream cocktail requires 1 shot each of creme de menthe, and creme de cacao mixed with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Fresh mint is also commonly added as a garnish once the cocktail has been mixed.
Making a grasshopper ice cream cocktail is easy, and this refreshing drink can be whipped up in a matter of minutes by following the guide below:
- Measure the ingredients
- Blend until creamy
Take a single shot of both creme de menthe and creme de cacao and add them to a blender. More can be added, depending on the number of people being served. In general, 1 shot of each will be enough for 2 cocktails. Add 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream per shot. Different flavors can also be used to create a more personalized cocktail, such as chocolate or mint.
Once the desired amount of creme de menthe, creme de cacao, and ice cream have been added to the blender, mix until smooth and creamy. For quicker results, it can be useful to leave the ice cream out of the freezer for a few minutes to soften before blending. Once the mixture is blended, serve straight away and garnish with a sprig of mint.
