Branca Menta Hopper drink recipe: Branca Menta, Creme de Cacao, Tia Maria, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur

The Branca Menta Hopper started out as a re-imagining of the classic Grasshopper recipe with the sample bottle of Branca Menta which the Fernet company had sent me.

Grasshopper Cocktail

Grasshopper Cocktail recipe with creme de menthe, creme de cacao and light cream.
