Grasshopper (IBA) Origin
Created at Tujague's, the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans, which was opened in 1856 by Guillaume Tujague. Some time before he died in 1912, Guillaume sold the restaurant to Philibert Guichet, who won second prize in a prestigious New York cocktail competition for this drink.
Given the period this cocktail was popular, the 1970s and 80s, it’s not surprising that some illustrious bartender thought to add vodka to create the rather better Flying Grasshopper cocktail.
