The Grasshopper Cocktail was invented by Philibert Guichet Jr., owner of Tujague's Restaurant in New Orleans and was possibly introduced in 1928 for a prestigious New York cocktail competition, in which Guichet placed second. Other sources state that the competition occurred in 1919, just before the enactment of Prohibition, which is a more plausible scenario. At his cocktail contest, Walter Winchell, American newspaper and commentator of the gossip column, was serving as one of the judges. Winchell has links to several cocktails, the first being the Pink Lady, which was reported to be his favorite. The Grasshopper is a concoction that topped the cocktail charts during the 1950s and 1960s and would become famous the world over. Till this very day, the actual winner of the cocktail contest remains untraceable.
