Betty’s Creamy Grasshopper Drink

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Creamy Grasshopper Drink. The Grasshopper pie that I uploaded yesterday is based on this cocktail. I have added vanilla ice cream to crème de menthe and crème de cacao and topped it with sweetened whipped cream, chocolate curls, and green maraschino cherries to make a gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day drink! Ingredients (for 2 generous drinks): 1 shot (1 ½ ounces) crème de menthe (You may substitute 1 tablespoon mint flavoring for a non-alcoholic version.) 1 shot (1 ½ ounces) crème de cacao (or cocoa) (You may substitute 1 tablespoon clear or white chocolate flavoring for a non-alcoholic version.) 4 large scoops vanilla ice cream 3 drops green food coloring sweetened whipped cream chocolate curls (I have a Quick Tip in bettyskitchen on making chocolate curls.) green maraschino cherries In the bowl of an electric blended, place 4 large scoops of vanilla ice cream. Add one shot of crème de menthe and one shot of crème de cacao. Set blended to “liquefy” and blend until blended and creamy. Add 3 drops green food coloring, for an intensified green coloring. Pour the Creamy Grasshopper Drink into tall dessert glasses or champagne flutes. Place a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on top of each drink. Sprinkle whipped cream with chocolate curls and top with a single green maraschino cherry. Enjoy! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you! ღღღღღ

  • ohpineapples:

    @bettyskitchen Oh I see.The cows are very close to your house huh?Do U hear them moo ever lol? I wonder if the farmer takes them in at night so they don’t keep you up mooing lol. I remember on vacation once we had to stay in this little motel on some highway (& that was the only motel/hotel for miles & it almost midnight) so we stayed at this no-tell/motel lol (but it was funny!) & all night we heard cows mooing b/c they were right oustide our window.For a city girl that was a long night lol

  • bettyskitchen:

    @ohpineapples They are across the back fence in our yard. They belong to the farmer who lives on that piece of land.

  • bettyskitchen:

    @ohpineapples I think the green maraschino cherries have less flavor, and I can’t identify any specific taste. You can use them anywhere you would use the red ones–just for effect, mainly.
