Day 105, Cocktail 105

Gwen and Tina went to see Wicked at the Marcus Center tonight and by the time they got back home they were ready for a wicked cocktail.  Oh, it was also supposed to be green, which started to limit the possibilities (since all my cocktails are wicked).  In fact, with no Midori at the Twilight Lounge it was either Tyku or green Cream de Menthe.  A coin toss later, Cream de Menthe won.  Now, what to do with it?  I’ve been messing around with gin and cream de menthe for a while now.  Out came the shaker, Plymouth and Cream de Menthe.  Hmmm, still a bit too minty.  According to Gwen and Tina it was an elderberry elixir that turned the witch green.  Well, I don’t have any elderberry, but I do have elderflower liqueur.  So, a bit of St. Germain later, and the Emerald Witch was born.

  Emerald Witch

  • 1-1/2 oz Plymouth gin
  • 1/8 oz Creme de Menthe
  • 1/4 oz St. Germain

Combine in a shaker with ice.  You know the drill.  Strain into a chilled coupe.

This worked out well, and the girls seemed to like it.  The St. Germain helps mellow the Creme de Menthe and the gin provides the structure for this one.  So go see Wicked or fire up The Wizard of Oz on your DVD player, mix up a pitcher of Emerald Witches and enjoy the show!
