Unlike the saccharine Grasshoppers of the 1960's, my version of this cocktail is lighter and more complex, thanks to the white chocolate liqueur and vanilla-infused vodka. And because I like a taste of sweet at the end of a meal, sometimes this minty drink is the only dessert I serve. Use clear creme de menthe, which looks better in the glass than the garish green brands. I like martini glasses but this cocktail gives you license to be creative and use any glassware you like.

2 Teaspoons Light Corn Syrup
