We’re back with another installment of our “Tequila Mix Masters” series, with our special guest, rockstar mixologist Adam Stemmler of Blind Tiger Cocktail Company. “Keeping Up with the Carthusians” uses two very special ingredients: Casa Noble Crystal tequila, and Green Chartreuse.
“With this recipe, I get to work with two of my absolute favorite ingredients in the whole world,” Stemmler said. “One being tequila, and the other being Green Chartreuse, which is a really beautiful French cordial-style spirit that is infused with over 140 different types of botanicals and made by Carthusian monks.”
“I use Casa Noble Crystal tequila in this cocktail because it adds an abundance of bright citrus, good herbaceous notes, and a little bit of peppercorn. Those flavors are really going to make the Green Chartreuse pop in this cocktail,” he said.
As you’ll see from Scarlet’s reaction, this cocktail is really refreshing. It’s very bright with citrus and herbal flavors, and the Casa Noble Crystal tequila really helps to pull out those flavors. It’s a very easy-to-drink cocktail — you could have several of them in a row!
