This isn’t for the faint of heart, but if Green Chartreuse is your jam, then you’ll definitely want to give this a read. All week long I’ll be featuring recipes that include a special cedar infusion, and today’s cocktail is no different. This creation combines some Cedar Maple Syrup, Fresh Pineapple, Mezcal and Green chartreuse!
If smoke or peat is not your thing, then stop. Turn around, find another recipe, because I doubt you’ll fall in love with this one. But for those adventurous, willing to open up to Green Chartreuse (or you’re already the biggest fan girl) then you will LOVE what this cocktail is all about. It’s extremely simple to throw together. I know I say that a lot, but I truly mean it! With a simple addition of mint, mezcal, FRESH pineapple, this is a swizzle dream. I’m not going to rant today and just give you what you came here for…The Recipe!
Cedar Maple and Chartreuse Swizzle
A mint, pineapple and cedar infused swizzle that is incredibly simple to create.
- 1/2 oz Mezcal
- 2 oz Green Chartreuse
- 4 oz FRESH Pineapple Juice
- 1/3 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Just a light squeeze
- 1/2 oz Cedar Maple Syrup
- 2 sprigs Mint One for garnishing
Warning, this is the lazy and quick way of throwing this together (in case my swizzle enthusiast are giving me a major stare down)
Lightly press a few mint leaves to extract its oils before tossing it into the bottom of the glass. Add the rest of the ingredients. Top with Crushed ice and stir until it dilutes and reaches the top.
