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, home to the oldest stand-up bar in the country.

Chef’s Notes: Be sure casserole is not watery. If it is, pierce topping and lower temperature in oven and continue to cook until water is absorbed.
