Grasshopper Float Recipe

The Grasshopper is a classic cocktail made with creme de menthe and creme de cacao, but you've never seen it like this—poured over ice cream, topped with silver bee pollen.

Servings: 1

Ingredients

2 scoops ice cream ( I love "Bath Salts" from Ice and Vice in NYC's Chinatown, which is lavender- and pine-flavored)
1/2 ounce creme de menthe
1/2 ounce white cacao
3/4 ounce dark rum
1 teaspoon chlorophyll
bee pollen, for garnish
confectioner's silver dust, for garnish

Directions

1. Scoop ice cream into a glass. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake rum, chlorophyll, creme de cacao and creme de menthe separately. Pour over the ice cream.

2. Garnish with silver-dusted bee pollen. Bee pollen is available at any health food store. Silver dust can be purchased at any cake supply shop.
