Green Dragon; Recipe for Chinese Inspired Cocktail | FOODSTANTLY

This a frozen cocktail, first you get 12 ounces Rock glass, fill it with ice then add a shot of Malibu, then a shot of Midori along with 1/2 a shot of Creme de Banana, slam the contents into a Blender along with 1/2 scoop of ice, blend then our into your Rock glass and top with a handful of Pineapple Chunks and your fresh Pineapple Juice, stir, then slam a shaker on (to distribute the chunks evenly). Pour back into your glass, serve with straws and stirrer. One GREEN DRAGON(Chinese Style).

Like most gin-based cocktails, the Green Dragon drink can be a bit of an acquired taste. In addition to the juniper/herbal flavor of the gin, the Green Dragon features a touch of creme de menthe and uses Kummel (an herbal liqueur) and orange bitters as a marrying ingredient to blend those two powerful flavors together.


The end result is a strong herbal flavor that keeps you intrigued until you get used to it. Let’s be clear: not everyone’s going to love this drink. Kummel has some strong flavors, like caraway seed and fennel. It’s sweet, but with notes of black licorice or anise. This cocktail doesn’t call for very much of it, but the notes are still in there, and to some people, those flavors can be overwhelming.

There are a number of different brands that make Kummel, so it’s not usually that hard to find. But if you’re unable to get your hands on any, I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is: there aren’t any really good substitutes. The good news is: you can make Kummel at home. It’s basically a gin infusion, and you might even prefer to make it yourself you can tinker with the recipe and get the flavors just the way you like them.

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass.
