The Jade Idol Cocktail is a refreshing and unique drink made with Green Chartreuse, honey syrup, lemon juice, lime juice, McGuinness Green Crème de Menthe, Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curaçao, and unaged Jamaican overproof rum.
Green Chartreuse is a herbal liqueur made from a blend of over 130 plants and herbs. This gives the cocktail its signature herbal flavor and bright green color. Honey syrup adds sweetness, while lemon and lime juice provide a citrusy kick to balance the sweetness.
McGuinness Green Crème de Menthe is a mint-flavored liqueur that gives the drink a refreshing and cool taste. Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curaçao adds a fruity and zesty note.
Finally, unaged Jamaican overproof rum provides a subtle hint of molasses and a touch of heat to the cocktail.
To make the Jade Idol Cocktail, shake ¾ oz each of Green Chartreuse, honey syrup, lemon juice, lime juice, ½ oz each of McGuinness Green Crème de Menthe and Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curaçao, and 1 oz unaged Jamaican overproof rum in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lime twist or sprig of mint.
Overall, the Jade Idol Cocktail is a well-balanced and refreshing drink with complex flavors and a bright green color, making it a perfect choice for any occasion.
