The Glamorous Grasshopper

Grasshopper Jelly Shots garnished with white chocolate

Recently, on the most perfect late summer afternoon imaginable, we attended an amazing wedding.  The ceremony was set in a forest glen that just happened to be in the bride and groom's backyard (just over the wooden bridge, on the other side of the koi pond . . .).  Pre-reception, guests sipped blended Grasshoppers (a favorite cocktail of the B&G) as the sunlight filtered gently through the oaks.  Just Delightful! 

Natch, when we were contemplating the creation of additional dessert jelly shots, Grasshopper Jelly Shot was at the top of the list.  Pictured above, this jelly shot is not just for after dinner anymore, but also suitable for serving at your afternoon wedding reception or tea with the Queen.
