This cocktail, on the menu at hotspot Lani Kai in New York City, is everything a good summer cocktail should be — strong, refreshing, and not overly sweet. Created by Clover Club bartender Brad Farran, this perfectly balanced cocktail features Beefeater 24, a gin crafted with 12 different botanicals.


  • 1-2 shiso leaves, plus one for garnish
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ½ ounces Beefeater 24 gin
  • ¾ ounce grapefruit juice
  • ½ ounce dry vermouth
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • Ice


Muddle the shiso leaves in simple syrup then add the remaining ingredients to the shaker. Shake with ice and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a fresh shiso leaf.

Green Beast

Absinthe is often used in small doses—a dash here, a rinse there. Mix classic drinks like the Sazerac and Corpse Reviver No. 2, and a bottle of absinthe could last you a lifetime, or at least a few dozen drinks. But sometimes, absinthe stars in the show. You can find it playing a big role in cocktails like the Death in the Afternoon, the Absinthe Frappé and the Green Beast.

The Green Beast is not just a reference to the Hulk. It’s a drink that was created in 2010 by bartender Charles Vexenat, an award-winning bartender who’s worked in London and Ibiza. At the time, he made the drink for Pernod Ricard as a way to show off the brand’s absinthe. The cocktail has passed the test of time and is one of the most well-known absinthe cocktails of the modern age.

The drink is essentially an update to the Absinthe Frappé, which features absinthe and anisette liqueur over crushed ice. But Vexenat’s Green Beast takes a unique turn by employing fresh cucumbers and lime juice to complement the high-proof absinthe.

The Green Beast can be concocted as a single serving or made in a big bowl and served as a punch. If going the solo route, combine your ingredients in a glass and enjoy. If you want to make a punch, you can do so right in the bowl. Simply scale up the ingredients by multiplying each by however many servings you want to achieve.

Party guests love a good punch, but chances are slim they’ve encountered the Green Beast in the wild. This is your opportunity to introduce them to this fierce-sounding—but friendly-drinking—cocktail.

What’s the Difference Between a Blue and Green Hawaiian?

While the ingredient list is somewhat similar to the Blue Hawaiian, the Green Hawaiian incorporates vodka and lemon-lime soda in addition to the coconut rum, blue curacao and pineapple juice normally found in a Blue Hawaiian. And just for the record, the Green Hawaiian does not have any cream of coconut in it.

In my opinion, the Green Hawaiian is a bit less sweet than the Blue Hawaiian, but is just as refreshing!

So, now that you know the difference between the two, it’s time to start mixing. I normally don’t use a cocktail shaker for this drink, but you could use one for the first step if you would like.

You could also make this into a frozen drink by blending all of the ingredients in step 1 with some ice and then topping with the lemon-lime soda. Personally, I think the Green Hawaiian tastes best over ice, but let me know if you try the frozen, blended version.

Finish the drink off with some fresh pineapple and a maraschino cherry, then sit back, relax and sip slowly. ?

25 Green St. Patrick&rsquos Day Drinks for a Lucky Soirée

Every St. Patrick&rsquos Day party deserves a little green in the scheme. And on a holiday that calls for a boozier bash, a drink is the best way to get in the spirit. From sweet shamrock frappes to citrusy chartreuse swizzles, enjoy a festively flavorful refreshment that will make you say &ldquoSláinte!&rdquo with 25 of our favorite green cocktails.

Put 8-10 mint leaves into a tall glass. Gently and briefly, so as not to break or bruise, use the back side of a bar spoon to press the leaves against the sides of the glass, until you can smell the mint. To this, add absinthe and simple syrup. Stir to combine, and add seltzer. Top fully with ice, and garnish with as much mint as your glass will hold, giving the bunches a quick slap between the hands beforehand will release oils on the surface and make the mint more aromatic. Add a straw and enjoy.

Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a glass filled with ice cubes. Top with dried orange slice, cucumber, and fresh mint leaves.

Curacao Cocktail Drink Recipe

I can&rsquot tell you how much I love Curacao, a flavored liqueur made from the dried peels of the laraha citrus fruit which grown on the island of Curaçao, hence, the name. The brilliant blue color, the bright citrus/orange tones and slight bitterness of this liqueur makes a perfectly delicious and beautiful cocktail. When Brandt Johnson, the head bartender at Club Med Columbus Isle was setting up for the evenings Food & Wine Festival cocktail demonstration, I was stunned at the beautiful tray of brilliant green sea of Green Flash curaçao cocktails drink.

What&rsquos a Green Flash? In the Bahamas, it&rsquos a &ldquonatural tropical phenomenon occurring at sunset. Very rarely, on utterly cloudless occasions, and just after the sun has disappeared underneath the sea, a brilliant band of green light as wide as the sun itself will flash across the horizon.&rdquo As beautiful as this natural wonder appears, this cocktail is as delicious. I personally have not experienced this amazing sunset sight, but I&rsquom now obsessed with seeing it one day. Back in my college days, I was obsessed with the aurora borealis and now I can add this green flash light show to my wish list. It&rsquos a big wish list in the making, but I have a whole lifetime to wait for it&rsquos coming.

Until the, I have this fabulous curaçao cocktail drink to hold me over. It&rsquos fruity, slightly bubbly and perfectly beautiful both in taste and beauty for any tropical setting. This will hold me over until I see the real deal over the sunset one day.

How to Make Our Favorite Green Detox Juice

We use an Omega juicer and absolutely love it. The majority of juicers on the market break down into two camps — slow juicers/cold pressed (also called macerating) and centrifugal juicers. Basically, this just means that the cold pressed variety slowly presses down the fruits or vegetables until the juice is completely pressed out and the now dry fibrous pulp falls into another container. A centrifugal juicer extracts juice by quickly spinning broken down veggies or fruits around until the juice separates from the pulp.

Centrifugal juicers are typically cheaper. There is some debate about whether or not the spinning mechanism creates heat, which can possibly break down enzymes. More importantly to us, centrifugal juicers are not as efficient at getting as much juice out of the produce, which means produce costs might go up.

Our juicer is a slow cold pressed juicer. We couldn’t be happier with it. If you want to check it out for yourself, you can read all about it here.

When it comes to juicing greens, the Omega juicer flies through them. You can sometimes get away without a juicer when making juices at home — we share how to make our beet juice using a blender. For greens, it really is best to use a high quality juicer — a blender just won’t cut it.

A juicer makes quick work of the greens as well as everything else. The juice comes together in under 10 minutes.

Destiny Official Cookbook Recipes Revealed

One of the more charming things you may not expect in the world of Destiny is that there’s an entire set of lore all about the foods the characters in the game eat. Ramen was highlighted in the launch trailer for Destiny 2, but there have also been cookies in the form of Gjallardoodles for a questline, and celery instead of Halloween candy that everyone’s favorite party pooper Eris Morn gave you as a “treat.”

With that in mind, Bungie, Insight Editions, and author Victoria Rosenthal have partnered to bring us an official cookbook of real-world versions of Destiny 2’s recipes. Rosenthal, who creates graphics for NASA as part of her day job, has translated many of those items alongside a few cocktails of your choosing.

Each recipe in the book - which is 208 pages long - come with step-by-step instructions and full color guide to help “fans go on their own culinary adventure.” I’m a big fan of trying out new recipes with my wife, and I plan to try out a few of these recipes to share the outcome with you on a future Fireteam Chat episode. In the meantime, check out a few exclusives they sent over to us that you can try for yourself at home in the slideshow below (no word yet on whether or not Radiolarian Pudding from the 2019 in-game Dawning event will be included, but I'm willing to bet it would be white chocolate pudding and be absolutely delicious.)
