The Red Dragon, a gorgeous cocktail now available at Bistro 31 & Toulouse, brings together Génépi liqueur, Casa Dragones tequila and Thai chili syrup. Génépi is an herbal liqueur similar to absinthe that is sometimes used as a digestif. In this cocktail, the strong and somewhat overpowering flavor of Génépi is balanced with spice thanks to the Thai chili. While a little spicy, it's a light but flavorful pairing to a meal.
0.75 oz. Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila
0.75 oz. Génépi Liqueur
0.75 oz. lime juice
0.75 oz. Thai chili syrup
3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
Add all ingredients, shake and strain into coupe glass and garnish with edible orchid.
