A conventional Grasshopper cocktail is made of equal parts white crème de menthe, green crème de menthe, and heavy cream, and the finished product comes out looking a pale minty shade of green. This version puts a white Christmas spin on the classic, swapping out the two crème de menthes for clear peppermint schnapps and white chocolate liqueur. Topped with decadent chocolate shavings, the result is a deliciously creamy dessert cocktail that’s perfect for the season of stockings, sleds, and sugar plum fairies.
Here’s the complete how-to:
- 1 oz peppermint schnapps
- 1 oz white chocolate liqueur
- 1 oz heavy cream
- Add schnapps, white chocolate liqueur, and cream to a shaker tin with ice. Shake vigorously.
- Strain into a chilled Coupe glass.
- Garnish with chocolate shavings.
