Green Dragon Cocktail

Green Dragon Cocktail

1/8 Lemon Juice. (1/4 oz Lemon Juice)
1/8 Kummel. (1/4 oz Gilka Kummel)
1/4 Green Mint. (1/2 oz Brizard Creme de Menthe)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz Beefeater’s Gin)
4 Dashes Peach Bitters. (Fee’s Peach Bitters)

Shake (stir, shake, what’s it matter?) well and strain into cocktail glass.

I still haven’t taken the plunge and purchased “Green Mint,” so I guess this is a “Silver Dragon”.

In any case, talk about wacky. I mean, it’s not an unbalanced or undrinkable cocktail. Just really weird.

The Mint and Peach are the dominant elements here with everything else hanging in the background.

I didn’t throw it away. I just can’t imagine any possible circumstances where I would make it again.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
