26 Oct Cocktail: The Aesop Fable
Inspired by the anecdotal story about the ant and the grasshopper from Aesop’s Fable, this cocktail takes the aromatic tones from the classic grasshopper cocktail, and is recreated with some updates. The classic Grasshopper originated at the Tujague’s Bar in New Orleans’ French Quarter in the 1950’s. We are replacing the bright green, with flavours of “green”.
