The Cucumber No. 5 -Green Chartreuse Focus

Today we bust out a drink that contains no core distillate... it utilizes Green Chartreuse as its primary focus. The rest of the products you'll find in here are not even alcohol-related.

So, here we enjoy a very herbal-forward drink with cucumber notes through-and-through but a very strange one indeed. It's one of those drinks you're not sure you love, but you have to continue to sip it again and again. Plus, it gives you a good use for that Chatreuse bottle you may have collecting dust.


Green chartreuse 1 Ounce
Pineapple juice 1 Ounce
Fresh lime juice 3/4 Ounce
Falernum 1/2 Ounce
Cucumber piece 3 (three 1 inch piece/ quarters)
Ice cubes 4



In a cocktail shaker, muddle 1 cucumber quarter piece.

Add green chartreuse, pineapple juice, lime juice, falernum, ice cubes and shake well.

Strain into glass with ice cubes.

Garnish with remaining 2 quarters.


Serve and enjoy!
