The Grasshopper a la Cocktail Vultures

A sweet, creamy, minty cocktail that became popular alongside her pink sister, the Pink Squirrel, with the same crowd and for the same reasons. When tweaking the original recipe, the Cocktail Vultures turned once again to ice cream. And we threw out the Creme de Cacao and brought in a quality chocolate vodka. The chocolate flavor in most Creme de Cacao is phony and barely there anyway, and all it lends is a heavy stickiness. The ice cream provides sweetness, and the vodka gives a better jolt of chocolate as well as a pleasant kick that makes this more than a girl-drink.

To an iced shaker, add:

2 ounces Creme de Menthe
2 ounces chocolate vodka http://www.vodka360.com/brandsflavors/360-double-chocolate.html
3 ounces melted vanilla ice cream

Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
