Hey Bread Booze & Bacon fans! I’m so happy to be here and share a boozy delicious cocktail with you while Julie is off getting married! My name is Lisa, and I blog over at Wine & Glue. My blog is packed with tons of delicious recipes and super easy crafts! You know, the kind you can do with a glue gun in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. Get it?
So I thought that since I’m here today because Julie is off getting married, that I would share one of my husband’s favorite drinks. He’s not much of a drinker, and not much of a liquor drinker, he usually likes to just have a beer. But! He does love ice cream. And mint. And he really likes when ice cream and mint and chocolate are all thrown together. Add some booze to that, and we have a happy Nathan.
I made this drink for Nathan on Christmas Eve this year after the kids went to bed. I sipped wine, he guzzled grasshoppers and we watched Bad Santa by the fire place. Not even joking.
And that is the secret to a happy marriage. Bad Santa, Grasshoppers, and a fire.
Nathan and I have been married for a little over 10 years. We are by no means experts at marriage, but we have been through our fair share of serious challenges, and come out on the other side still together, and stronger for it. So here is my huge marital advice for Mike and Julie: Be kind. Kindness is the answer to so many things in life, but I think that it is the answer even more often in marriage. If you two crazy kids can remember to be kind to each other, you will be fine.
And Grasshoppers on Christmas Eve are a nice plus.
This Grasshopper is part cocktail, part milkshake, and all totally delicious!
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
- 1 ounce green creme de menthe
- 1 ounce creme de cocoa
- Chocolate syrup
- Whip cream
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Line a large milkshake glass with chocolate syrup. Place in the freezer for a few minutes. (Work quickly, it's drippy.)
- In a blender combine the vanilla ice cream, creme de menthe, and creme de cocoa. Pour into the chocolate lined glass. Top with whipped creme and sprinkles!
