Refuge’s Greenhorn

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Recipe by Bobby Hengelstraat, Refuse, Houston

I found this drink quite by accident, while googling around. The sweet sour bitter combination kind of intrigued me.

It goes with our green dinner tonight.

The delicately absinthian gentian liqueur subtends the cheekiness of the tequila and the lustrous melon flavor of Midori.

I didn’t have a green cherry, so used a normal one. I’m gonna get me some green ones now though that I know they are out there.

It’s quite a liquor forward drink, so not for the faint hearted. But I do love me some Suze.

47.7ml Tequila Blanco- I used El Cuervo
30ml Midori
22.5ml Suze

Stir all ingredients together with ice until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass suitable for a king.

A green Maraschino cherry, or a red one, like I did.
