Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Grasshopper

March 13, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,


Tis the season for green cocktails so here is our take on a classic, the Grasshopper. This drink has been said to originate in New Orleans and gained popularity in the 1950s. Our take adds muddled mint and crushed oreos and reminds us of thin mint cookies or a decadent dessert. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
