The Nebula

September 12, 2009

Tito's vodka
Green Chartreuse
Concorde grapes
lemon juice

Muddle the grapes and basil, combine ingredients, shake and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon ribbon.

We were surprised to find that these grapes yielded a vivid fuchsia color despite the fact that they were a dull, blackish color. The Chartreuse punched up the basil just enough to create a subtle herbal note to liven up the citrus-sweetness.

I love that you share your cocktail ideas with us but is there a reason you don't include quantities for any of the ingredients?

Well, we'd love for you to experiment with quantities, but we'd really like you to come in and have us mix for you! That said, if you'd like specifics on a cocktail, we'd be happy to share.
