101 Best New Cocktails: Little Dragon by Humberto Marques, CURFEW, Copenhagen, Denmark
Humberto Marques, CURFEW, Copenhagen, Denmark
“A cocktail created for the summer menu, but this cocktail could be sipped all year. A perfect pairing between mango, green tea, and dry sherry makes a perfect match with Tanqueray gin along with tarragon to temper the coolness between all of the ingredients. As John Evelyn says of tarragon: ‘Tis highly cordial and friend to the head, heart and liver.’ A little dragon it is!” Humberto Marques
50 ml (1.7 oz) mango puree
20 ml (.66 oz) dry sherry
20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice
15 ml (.5 oz) honey
1 pinch green tea powder (matcha)
1 tarragon sprig, as garnish
Shake over ice and strain into an ice-filled goblet. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: It’s hard to tell where the tail to the dragon ends in this drink—it’s the longest short cocktail I ever did sip. And it’s absolutely fabulous. Humberto seems to know what he’s doing, I think!
