Grasshopper Cocktail

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment:

Crème de menthe (peppermint liqueur)

Crème de cacao (chocolate liqueur)

Half Cream (double or single)

Half Milk (mixed together)

Margarita glass (or something similar from cupboard)

Ice Cubes

2 x sip straws

Cocktail Shaker/Glass

Drink Strainer


This is a very short, but enjoyable cocktail, and easy to drink after a dinner party. It is also fairly easy to make.

To start, you will need to ‘pre-chill’ the margarita glass, by filling it up with ice! This is so, by the time you have mixed the cocktail and are ready to pour it, the glass is cold enough. Pour equal measures (one shot of each), of the Crème de menthe and Crème de cacao into the bottom of the cocktail shaker, with (about a third of the way up the cocktail shaker), the    pre-mixed milk and cream. Before. shaking the cocktail, place a few ice cubes in the cocktail shaker, then shake the cocktail mix’ roughly 10/15 times over  the shoulder. Throw away the ice in the margarita glass, , and strain the cocktail as  you pour it from the shaker into the glass. Ensuring no ice is put into the glass. Finally, garnish with a sprig of mint. Relax and enjoy!

30th Birthday Party-Runcorn

In November we completed a Birthday Party event. We had a fun night working locally in Runcorn. Carla (who booked us) wanted a ‘Black Tie Event’ with gaming tables and all the food had been made at home by her hard working mum Karen and served by the dance students. Lovely people to work for Carla, Karen and Jim. We had a brilliant night with everyone enjoying the cocktails and ‘shots’. We hope their were not too many sore heads the next day!
