1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
Build in a Highball glass with ice and top with 3 oz of ginger beer (AJ Stephans). Garnish with a long grapefruit twist after squeezing some of the oils over the drink.
Tuesday last week, I decided to make the Virgin de Guadalupe that I found in Gary Regan's Annual Manual for Bartenders 2011. Adrian Biggs of La Descarga in Los Angeles named his drink after a vision of the Virgin Mary who appeared to Juan Diego near Mexico City and told him to build a church in the 16th century. The icon of the Virgin of Guadalupe later became Mexico's most popular religious and cultural image. The drink itself reminded me of the Tequila Buck El Burro, and its Yellow Chartreuse aspect made me think of the Restauranteur.
