Hey, chocolate lovers: are you in need of a really good chocolate signature cocktail, or even an idea for a unity cocktail? This grasshopper julep might be your new favorite drink. We just had the Kentucky Derby, so a good, stiff bourbon drink is just what the drink doctor ordered. Hell, maybe just save this recipe for a particularly long crafting night. I won't judge. I'm probably drinking one right now anyway. Let's see how to make this mint meets chocolate meets booze delicious monstrosity.
