The Original New Orleans Grasshopper Cocktail

Story goes that this after dinner desert cocktail was invented sometime in the 1910s by Philibert Guichet at Tujague’s in New Orleans, across the street from Cafe Du Monde. This is a fun little desert cocktail that taste like an Andes Chocolate Mint and it’s also the drink Kermit orders when he thinks Miss Piggy has left him in The original Muppet Movie.
