Mr. Boston, for yet another inspirational cocktail.
Vodka Grasshopper (adapted from Mr. Boston)
1oz creme de menthe
1oz creme de cocoa
2T heavy cream
dash of mint bitters (optional)
Shake well over ice and strain.
This appears in both the old and newer versions of Mr. Boston. It is such an old-timey drink. The dash of mint bitters gives it the slight green color. The bitters are purely optional. The Sous Chef is a bit bitters mad so we have many different flavors hanging around and thought this might be a nice addition to this drink.
This was tasty but I think I prefer a mudslide with a splash of creme de menthe (recipe forthcoming). But then again chocolate is my thing! I do like mint so this does make a refreshing change.
