Herbal Lemonade

This is a fun, refreshing drink that we decided to put out. I’m a big fan of Chartreuse and Orange Blossom water, so I figured I would try to put them in the same thing. Here’s what happened —

Herbal Lemonade
1.5 oz. Gin
1 oz. Lemon Juice
0.75 oz. Simple Syrup
0.5 oz. Green Chartreuse
1.5 oz. Egg Whites
3 dr Orange Blossom Water

Dry shake all ingredients
Add ice and shake for an additional 10-15 seconds
Strain into Collins Glass over ice
Top with soda water (use the foam as garnish)

Notes: This drink has just about everything you need. Gin lends its normal amount of botanicals, and with the simple addition of Green Chartreuse’s flavor profile, you get a very rich and complex taste. The lemon juice is necessary to balance all that out with a slight amount of acidity and tartness. The Orange Blossom water just adds more refreshing flavors. It is just a taste adventure. Excellent mouthfeel off the egg whites, and soda water adds the perfect amount of bubbly. Really just a drink that everyone should get a chance to try. =]
