Around the World – Recipe from David Embury’s ‘The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks’
1 part Green Creme de Menthe
2 parts Pineapple Juice
8 parts Gin
Shake with cracked or crushed ice. Decorate with a green cherry.
Still don’t have green cherries, and I wonder if this is where the drink gets its name from.
the drink is palatable enough if perhaps a little forgettable, the crème de menthe and the pineapple working well again, and with the gin it’s a little lighter than rum.
It works ok, just not particularly amazing.
