Green Cacao Cocktail is certainly not a shy cocktail. Its rich, strong flavors are layered with bitter chocolate notes, herbaceous tones, and a distinctive peat-smudged smokiness. The alcohol forward nature of the cocktail speaks to those who prefer an assertive drink.
- ¼ ounce Ardbeg 10yr Islay single malt Scotch whisky
- 1 ½ ounce Selvarey Cacao Rum
- ½ ounce Green Chartreuse
- ½ ounce Cynar
- 2 dash Miracle Mile chocolate chili bitters
Pour Scotch into a old fashioned glass and “turn” the glass rolling the liquid along the inside until well-coated; pour out the excess. This in known as “rinsing” the glass. Fill the glass with one large or several medium ice cubes. Set aside.
Combine rum, Chartreuse, Cynar & bitters in a mixing glass half-filled with ice. Stir gently until chilled and properly diluted, about 20 seconds. Julep strain into the prepared glass.
