Little Dragon

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

Little Dragon50 ml (1.7 oz) Tanqueray gin

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!
