The Grasshopper was invented by Philip Guichet of Tujague’s Restaurant in New Orleans in 1918. It won second place in a cocktail contest in New York City but it’s first in the hearts of anybody who has enjoyed one at Tujague’s. If you haven't been to their new location just across from Jax Brewery, check it out. Great courtyard, too.
