Green Flash

Just as the sun goes down, a green glow appears along the horizon for 2 or 3 seconds. This dazzling moment has inspired many a tropical green concoction. This is a refreshing rum fizz laced with the herbal notes of green Chartreuse and lends the drink a celadon-hued glow.

Ingredients:

  • Silver Rum – 1 1/2 ounces
  • Green Chartreuse – 3/4 ounce
  • Fresh Lime Juice – 3/4 ounce
  • Superfine Sugar – 1 tblsp
  • Club Soda – 2 to 3 ounces, chilled
  • Lime Wedge

Method:

  1. Shake the rum, Chartreuse, lime juice and sugar vigorously with ice.
  2. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass.
  3. Top with club soda and stir gently.
  4. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink and drop it in.
  5. Serve.
