ginger liqueur, tequila, yellow chartreuse

Seeing yellow Chartreuse in a recipe always makes us happy. Less known/used compared to its green sibling, yellow Chartreuse is a smooth and less alcohol strong herbal liqueur that goes well in many cocktails.⁣

It’s now been almost a year since we bought our vintage glass camel stirrer, and we still haven’t found just the right shoot to use it in. Now we figured we can’t wait anymore so here we go, without any reasonable connection to the recipe itself, this cocktail is gently stirred with a . . . camel.⁣

The drink is delicious by the way. It’s strong and herbal, and we really like the almost green look it gets from the yellow Chartreuse.⁣
