One of the great things about the Grasshopper is that you can easily experiment with the ratio of the creme de cacao and menthe to find a combination that fits your taste. And whatever that may be, this Martini is a fantastic dessert cocktail and can be served on the rocks for the equally great Peppermint Patty.

The suggestion of white and green liqueurs creates a pale, creamy green cocktail. However if you use either the brown (cacao) and white(menthe) you will have a drink with a completely different color.
