My grandmother used to give us Crème de menthe over ice cream when we were little. To this day I cannot think of Crème de menthe without associating it wth my grandmother! We loved it as it added a fresh, minty taste to liven up our vanilla ice cream. I don’t even think we knew it was alcoholic!

This is very close to the classic grasshopper recipe (that is 1-1-1 and uses fresh cream specifically), I just updated with vanilla ice cream — an ice cream float for adults!

Crème de menthe comes in both clear and green. For Christmas drinks, I would think you would want the green color – both for cocktails and after dinner cordials!
