1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Green Tea Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice
Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
One of the drinks I created for the new Loyal Nine menu revision never made it onto the list to make room for egg nog and other seasonal offerings instead, but I will try to find a home for it in the future. When two drinks were coming off the menu, I rescued the rhum agricole from one and the green tea syrup from the other to craft a grassy Daiquiri of sorts. To round out the combination, I looked to the Pirate Slave and added the bitter complexity of Punt e Mes. And for a name, I thought of the Nautilus, but there is already a cocktail or two named after that. So instead, I took the Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea theme a step further and dubbed it after the resting place of Captain Nemo.
