Lawn Dart - oh yeah

My friend and colleague gave me a cocktail book last week.  It has many, many recipes that look interesting so will give this blog many more months of material at least.

It is essentially summer's prelude here in Texas, the average high is 80 degrees, people are in shorts and tank tops, flip flops.  Grass is growing quickly and thoughts turn to the light, refreshing drinks such as margaritas and G&Ts.

In this book, a cocktail called the Lawn Dart caught my eye.  It has green bell pepper.  What you say?  Yes, I know, weird ingredient.  But it makes the drink.

Muddle a slice or two of green bell pepper with 1.5 oz agave syrup
The add and shake over ice:

2 oz tanqueray (I only had T10)
2 oz high quality tequila blanco
1.5 oz lime juice
0.5 oz green chartreuse

Strain and serve over rocks or pebbles


This is my new favorite drink.
