Grinch Grasshopper Cocktail


  • 4 oz. green crème de menthe
  • 4 oz. clear crème de cacao
  • 4 oz. 1/2-&-1/2
  • red sugar sprinkles
  • large heart-shaped sprinkles


  1. Place some red sugar sprinkles in a shallow bowl or plate.  Working with one glass at a time, moisten the rim of two martini glasses with water and dip in the red sugar sprinkles to coat.  Set aside until you're ready to pour in your Grinch grasshopper cocktail mixture.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add crème de menthe, crème de cacao, and ½-&-1/2. Shake for about 30 seconds.
  3. Strain shaken mixture into prepared glasses.
  4. Garnish each with a single large heart-shaped sprinkle floating on the top.

NOTE:  You can also simply mix all ingredients together and chill in the refrigerator before serving rather than using a cocktail shaker.
