On Thursday night, I hosted a book club Avenue M, my neighborhood “Cheers.” Twenty fabulous women joined me for a drinks, dinner, and discussion about  my book The Inspired Life: How Connection and Contribution Create Power, Passion, and Joy. When a neon green drink in a martini glass arrived on our table, I wanted to know what it was.

A grasshopper! I hadn’t thought of a grasshopper in years. There’s a well-known joke about this cocktail. A grasshopper walks into a bar. The bartender looks at him and says, “Hey we have a drink named after you!” The grasshopper replies, “You have a drink named Bob?” Here’s how to make a grasshopper.

One ounce of White Crème de Cacao

One ounce of Green Crème de Menthe

One ounce of Half and Half

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.
