Piña Verde

Piña Verde blended cocktail with Green Chartreuse and cream of coconut

Master mixologist Erick Castro of San Diego’s Polite Provisions tinkered with the typical Piña Colada recipe, adding ever-greater shares of Green Chartreuse to get more of its complex, herbaceous flavor. Eventually, he ditched the rum entirely and maxed-out the Chartreuse, tinkering with the recipe until he landed on this recipe for the Piña Verde.

It’s difficult to specify how much ice should go into a blended drink; much depends on the type of ice you use, the style of blender, and so on. Start with about a cupful of ice for each serving, and add more ice, a half-cup at a time, until you’ve achieved a thick mixture that can’t quite hold a spoon upright.

Instructions

Blend all ingredients with about a cupful of ice, adding more if needed. Pour into a glass or tiki mug and garnish with a sprig of mint. It’s also nice with some fresh nutmeg grated on top.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
