CUESA's Fruit-Themed Cocktail Party Serves Up a Buzz with Plenty of Intestinal Fiber
|Josh Harris of 15 Romolo strains his berrylicious creation.|
|Jackie Patterson of Heaven's Dog shakin' it.|
Voting on the audience favorite resulted in a tie between H. Joseph Ehrmann of Elixir's Mountain Peach (we posted the recipe on SFoodie a couple of days ago) and the berrylicious Tuscan Smash from Josh Harris of 15 Romolo (our personal fave). Harris has so far been mum on his recipe, but we did score a list of ingredients for another of our favorites, the Green and Orange from Jackie Patterson of Heaven's Dog (recipe after the jump).
When an admirer asked Patterson if the Green and Orange would be showing up at Heaven's Dog, she cheerfully replied, "If my bar backs had to juice carrots and melons every night, they'd kill me!" Looks like you're stuck making it at home.
1 ½ ounces green Chartreuse
1 ounce fresh carrot juice, preferably organic
1 ounce fresh cantaloupe juice
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce honey
Shake on ice and fine-strain into a chilled cocktail glass; garnish with a cilantro leaf.
