1/6 Gronsteldt Swedish Punsch (1/2 oz Kronan)
1/6 Dry Vermouth (1/2 oz Noilly Prat)
1/6 Orange Juice (1/2 oz)
1 tsp Bols Blue Curaçao (1 tsp Senior Curaçao + 1/2 drop blue food coloring)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After the They Shall Inherit the Earth, Andrea wanted a Swedish Punsch drink that would utilize our unopened bottle of Kronan. For inspiration, I opened up the Café Royal Cocktail Book and found the Green Line. Just like the Bluebeard's Passion, the Green Line proves that drinks containing blue Curaçao are not necessarily cheesy; perhaps the 1930's British aesthetic assists in giving the recipes some dignity. The Green Line, of course, is not named after the subway line here in Boston but a train line in London that was converted from the Metropolitan Line into their subway's Green Line 1933.
