Spend more time with your guests by pre-making a batch of this minty drink. This ice cream bucket grasshopper drink is my most requested recipe after hosting a party.
Keep in mind that it is not the traditional way most people most grasshoppers…just MY way. Like I mentioned, over the years during my holiday parties countless party go-ers have requested the recipe. So, I did something right.
Gallon vanilla Ice Cream
2 8oz Cool Whip
1 oz Green Creme de Mint
1 oz White Creme de Cocoa
In a mixmaster bowl or regular mixing bowl, measure out the creme de cocoa and creme de mint. Add the entire gallon of vanilla ice cream and the 2 cool whip.
Mix all ingredients until fully blended and you reach a nice green minty color. Spoon the mixture back into the gallon ice cream container, minus a taste test for yourself of course.
Place the ice cream bucket into a freezer. It is best to make this grasshopper mix for at least 2 days so the ice cream mixture can set back up.
To serve: Just place the amount of the grasshopper mix desired in a glass. Add a half a straw to complete the drink, both as a stir stick, and for sipping.
