It’s been too long since we’ve shared cocktail recipes. Today, Mrs. Likko said she wanted something new, something sweet, and something refreshing. So I looked up things to make, and found the Iguana. It happened that I had no jalapeno-infused tequila left, and my wife isn’t all that fond of spicy things anyway. Then the limes we had turned out to be no good. So I made Baby Iguanas instead:
- 1½ parts resposado tequila
- ½ part green Chartreuse
- ½ part Rose’s sweetened lime juice
- several cucumber segments
- tangerine, segmented
Put the tequila in a cocktail shaker. Drop in several segments of cucumber, reserving a few. Allow to soak and marinate for about five minutes. Add ice, Chartreuse, and juice. Shake well. Garnish glass with ice, serve with a segment or two of tangerine.
Went nicely on its own as a pre-dinner drink.
