chasing fireflies

1 1/2 oz El Jimador Tequila Blanco
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and add straws.

Two Sundays ago, we ventured over to Trina's Starlite Lounge for dinner. There, we found seats at the bar in front of bartender Emma Hollander. For a first cocktail, I asked Emma for the Chasing Fireflies off of the "Tasty Drinks from Good People" section of their menu, and that guest recipe was donated by Tony Iamunno of Stoddard's.
Chasing Fireflies began with a lime and perfume-y aroma. A citrus sip yielded a smooth orange and lime flavor, and the swallow showcased the tequila followed by a nutty and herbal finish. Perhaps the drink had shades of Trader Vic's Pinky Gonzalez to it.
