    Hi, I am Josh Dubois. Today, we are making vodka drinks and right now, I am going to show you how to make a Vodka Grasshopper. Now, what you are going to want to do is you are going to want to take your mixing glass and you are going to want to fill it up with ice. Next, you are going to put equal parts of vodka, crme de menthe and crme de cacao into this drink. You are going to put one ounce of each or two pour counts, one, two crme de menthe, one, two and crme de cacao which tastes kind of chocolaty, one, two.

    Next, you are going to take your shaker tin, put it on top, flip it over, give it a nice shake, undo and you are going to want to serve this in a rocks glass. Let us pour it all in there, nice and green. You are going to want to garnish it with a mint, sprig of mint and serve. That is how you make a Grasshopper.

    Next, we are going to be making a Vodka Sling.
