Emerald City

Emerald City cocktail with lime LaCroix, creme de menthe, rhum agricole blanc, and lime

The Emerald City is a creative “dressed can” cocktail from Matthew Belanger, of Death & Co.

Built of a base of crisp, grassy rhum agricole blanc (Belanger suggests Rhum JM 100 Blanc), brightened with cool mint liqueur and fresh lime, lengthened with lime-flavored sparkling water – can you imagine anything more refreshing?

The Emerald City recipe calls for Giffard’s Menthe-Pastille. You can use any sweet mint liqueur you prefer, and it doesn’t matter if it’s white or green since it’s in a can.

Instructions

Pour out 1.5 ounces (45 mL) of the lime flavored sparkling water. Add the rhum agricole and mint liqueur to the can, along with the juice from the lime wedge. Stir gently with a straw or narrow spoon.

Tuck a fat spring of fresh mint into the can’s opening, along with some makrut lime leaves if you happen to have those lying around. Dust over the whole drink with powdered sugar, and serve with a straw.

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
