Lemon Haze

This here is a variation of the The Mother-in-Law, inasmuch as it uses citrus, bitter orange liqueur, and Chartreuse. This concoction is a bit lighter and more easy going though, as it can be served on the rocks or punch style if you prefer:

  •  1.5 oz white rum
  • .75 Cointreau
  • .5 Green Chartreuse 
  • .5 Lemon juice
  • .25 Aperol (or Campari if Aperol isn’t available)

Build in ice filled shaker, shake, and strain into chilled cocktail glass, float a lemon wheel on top (or pour into old fashioned glass and garnish with lemon wedge, a sprig of your favorite aromatic herb, or a few brandied cherries).

Drinking this is like having a tart lemonade in an herb garden and it goes quite well with fish and lighter fried foods. It’s also easy to batch this up to make enough for a punch bowl or a picnic. I am also going to try making this without the rum and using it either as a marinade for fish or as the base of a lemon caper sauce.

Enjoy.

    I was wondering how your inventive concoctions had gone cold when I see so many interesting infusions around. But you’re back!
