Mixology Monday Cocktail Contest

Ed from eGullet holds a monthly cocktail contest called Mixology Monday. To participate, I’m supposed to post a link to this page on Wordsmithing Pantagruel.

The theme of this round is “green” and dictates the use of any green-colored ingredient. I’ve entered my Green Like a Fox cocktail, which is as such:

Green Like a Fox ✯✯✯✯1/2
—————-
3/4 oz silver tequila
3/4 oz pisco
1/2 oz green Chartreuse
1/4 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/3 oz agave nectar

Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Green Like a Fox

The Chartreuse gives the drink a delicate, earthy-green tint. It’s a tart and sweet pleasure chock-full of herbal goodness! I created the drink for a friend and backer of my book project. One of the rewards offered in my fundraising campaign was a signature cocktail, custom crafted by me. One Mr. Fox took advantage of the offer and will now forever be associated with Chartreuse and envy. And craziness.
