Invented at Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the 1950s, the Pink Squirrel is the Grasshopper’s underrated little sister. Equally creamy but bright pink, it enjoyed a few decades of kitsch popularity before falling into obscurity. While the Grasshopper has recently received some attention from craft bartenders and cocktail nerds, the Pink Squirrel is overdue for a comeback. Though Bryant’s, the cocktail’s originator, makes theirs with ice cream, we prefer to make ours with cream for a slightly less decadent affair.
