2 oz Reposado Tequila, Lunazul Reposado (Use your fave 100% agave reposado.)
1⁄2 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin (Noilly Prat also would be good. Fresh always.)
1⁄2 oz Kiwi shrub (Homemade here using demarara, rice wine vinegar & cider vinegar.)
1⁄4 oz Orange liqueur, Citronge (More forward & spicier than Cointreau.)

Build over ice in mixing glass, shake for 15 secs or stir for 30, strain & serve straight up.


Name is Spanish for "early Spring", which pertains to the Spring green color of the drink. It's richly herbal and vegetal, for a change up sub ginger shrub for the Citronge.

Ritty commented on 9/15/2011:

I almost passed this one by as I didn't have kiwi shrub, then I noticed that no one does except the drink's creator!

Kiwi shrub, like any culinary shrub, is really easy to make when the fruit is in season. I encourage you to try it!
