ABV’s Piña Verde

“We’ve tried génépy in all kinds of cocktails where we’d normally use green Chartreuse,” says ABV’s Ryan Fitzgerald, of the herbal, pine-scented liqueur. In this cocktail—”a sort of tribute to [San Francisco bartender] Marcovaldo Dionysos, creator of the Chartreuse Swizzle and lover of tequila”—génépy meets blanco tequila, lime and pineapple, for a summer sipper that’s refreshing and ever-so-slightly bitter.


Serving: 1

  • 2 ounces blanco tequila, preferably Tapatio Blanco 80pf
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce génépy, preferably Dolin Génépy des Alpes
  • 3/4 ounce pineapple gomme
  • 4 dashes orange bitters

Garnish: compressed pineapple

  1. Shake all ingredients and fine-strain into chilled coupe.
  2. Garnish with compressed pineapple.
