1⁄2 oz Strega (or Yellow Chartreuse)

Shake, strain, rocks, lowball glass


The apricot was originally in Armenia in ancient times. A complex, interesting Margarita variation.

I agree with the individual notes that this is a little heavy on the lime and light on the Apricot and/or Strega. As written up, the result is just not that different a "normal" margarita which is too bad, given the interesting other ingredients.
