After Eight

After Eight Cocktail from Passion for Cocktails

A rich, sweet, mint-flavoured Cocktail with a generous and immoral penchant of chocolate - a cocktail and chocolate lover's ideal combination first created in the 1950's. Sheer Heaven.




1 shot vodka
3/4 shot crème de menthe
3/4 shot chocolate liqueur (dark or milk)
2-3 dash mozart chocolate bitters
Squeeze chocolate sauce
3/4 shot milk
3/4 shot cream


The After Eight is based in the Grasshopper Cocktail. The After Eight has the addition of a layer of dark chocolate liqueur to the crème de menthe and cream.

The Grasshopper is said to have been created at Tujague's bar in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans by its owner and Mixologist Philip Guichet in the 1950's.  Where the variation which became After Eight is not so certain and is lost in the midst of time and Mixology folklore.



Glassware For This Cocktail

Coupe - Champagne Saucer
This Cocktail glass also known as "The Champagne saucer glass" was first created and used widely in the 1930's. Characterized by a tall stem and wide bowl. The Cocktail drinker's nose inhales the aroma, fragrance and bouquet of the cocktail - be it heady or delicate from the expansive bowl. The Coupe Cocktail glass was the original Champagne glass for literally the first half of the 20th century before the Champagne flute became popular in the 1950's and 1960's and subsequently took over as the glass to drink Champagne.
