Green Dragon

Like most gin based drinks, the Green Dragon cocktail can be a bit of an acquired taste. In addition to the juniper/herbal flavor of the gin, the Green Dragon features a touch of creme de menthe, and uses Kummel (an herbal liqueur) and orange bitters as a marrying ingredients to blend those two powerful flavors together. The end result is a strong herbal flavor that keeps you intrigued until you get used to it.
