I called this Juniper #1, because I have made some Juniper-infused tequila, and I plan on making lots of things with it, and I like numbering them, so people know they are part of some sort of “series.”
1.5 oz. Juniper-infused Tequila
0.5 oz. Yellow Chartreuse
0.5 oz. Simple Syrup
0.75 oz. Lime Juice
Shake all ingredients over ice
Strain into a chilled Cocktail glass
Garnish with lime wheel
Notes: This cocktail was pretty much the perfect balance of liquor, bitters, and sugar. The juniper berries really amp that tequila up, and I think it blends way better with the Chartreuse this way. As mentioned, we will definitely be making more juniper-infused tequila cocktails.
Feel free to leave a comment on what you think about this cocktail, or if you make one, please share your experience here or on Facebook.
Enjoy! See ya next time! =]
