The Seventies Holiday Grasshopper Cocktail


1 part creme de menthe liqueur (green)
1 part vodka
1 part half-and-half (or heavy cream or even vanilla ice cream -- yum, Strauss Vanilla Bean! )
1 bottle cupcake flavored Smucker’s Magic Shell Topping ice cream topping 
Red liquid food coloring (aka "Red Dye no. 2" )
Small plastic squeeze bottle


  1. Put cocktail glasses in the freezer to chill. About 10 mins or so should be fine. Gather the rest of your ingredients.
  2. Combine cocktail ingredients in mixing glass or large pitcher (depending on your quantities), stir, and refrigerate- the colder the better.
  3. Pour cupcake flavored Magic Shell® into a squeeze bottle, leaving enough room at the top to be able to shake it to mix thoroughly. Add red food coloring bit by bit (capping the bottle and shaking well after each addition) until desired color is reached.
  4. Remove a glass from the freezer and paint a design on the inside surface with your bottle of Magic Shell®- stars and swirls work well. Place glass in back in freezer, or in refrigerator until serving time. Repeat with the rest of the glasses.
  5. Immediately before serving, remove a glass from fridge or freezer, fill with the chilled cocktail mixture, and enjoy
