The Little Dragon
50 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(half tea spoon) green tea powder (matcha)
1 tarragon sprig
Shake over ice and strain into an ice-filled goblet.
Add tarragon sprig as the garnish.
Comments: “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
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!
Where to drink it :
