This is THE perfect grasshopper recipe! Some of them are overpoweringly minty, but this one is just right! Instead of ice cube I used a generous dash of half and half. Worked perfectly. My Dad asked me to add mini schoclate chips next time, and I told him just for him I woudl do it! I think he is anxiously waiting for me to make them again! :)

Wow, this was just about perfect for my tastebuds! It reminded me a bit of a much better and naughty version of the Shamrock shakes I used to get as a kid from McDonald's on St. Patricks Day. I just dusted the top of mine with a tiny bit of chocolate powder. Made for vegetarian tag.

This is wonderful as a dessert or just for a tasty treat. I added a bit more of the creme de menthe as I tend to like a bit stronger mint flavor.

Used this for a desert on St. Patricks Day. It was yummy and refreshing after cornned beef & cabbage. I garnished it with crushed green mint candies.

Made this last night for a St. Patrick's Day Party. It was very well received! I used more like 1 oz of both liquors - but it was on the verge of being too minty so I'll use less creme de menthe next time. Couldn't find white creme de cacao so used clear. I got 3 small drinks out of the recipe.

Delish! My great aunt used to make me pitchers of these when I was a little girl. Having kids of my own now, I do find that a bit disturbing, but this is every bit as good as I remember. Creamy, sweet, minty milkshake, not too heavy on the alcohol. Thanks, Rita, for sharing the recipe!
