“Kids drink”? You must be kidding (no pun intended): a grasshopper is not only delicious, but also quite alcoholic. I used to drink them all the time in the ‘60s (I adored creme de menthe, starting from the time I used to have the so-called creme de menthe syrup on ice cream as a child)—at home during the holidays from college, and at a local bar in RI a few steps (fortunately) from my apartment. They go down easy, so be careful!
