Emerald City
Adapted from a recipe by Troy Tindal, Prairie Ale House, Minneapolis, MN.

1/4 Granny Smith apple

5 to 6 mint leaves

22.5 ml (.75 oz) orgeat syrup

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lime juice

60 ml (2 oz) Tanqueray No. TEN gin

7.5 ml (.25 oz) green Chartreuse

1 mint leaf, as garnish

Muddle the apple, mint, orgeat, and lime juice well. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake hard and double-strain into chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: I love the way that the orgeat dances with the Chartreuse in this one, and the Tanqueray No. TEN shines right on through everything, too. For a relatively mild-mannered gin, it certainly makes its presence known here.
