It\u2019s not easy being green\u2014particularly for a sweet, creamy drink in the throes of a cocktail renaissance. Yet the Grasshopper persists, part retro appeal and part guilty pleasure. Like many classics, the Grasshopper recipe hails from New Orleans, purportedly originating at Tujague\u2019s at the hands of Philip Guichet, who took ownership of the restaurant in the early 20th century. Guichet mixed up the Grasshopper for a cocktail competition in New York City in 1918, for which he took second place. The Grasshopper has been served at Tujague\u2019s ever since. Plenty of bartenders have tinkered with the formula over the years, bumping up the bitterness or doubling down on the decadence and making it a boozy milkshake. But sometimes, particularly at the holidays, there\u2019s nothing quite like a sweet, creamy drink\u2014especially one that\u2019s green.
