This pretty cocktail is named after a lovely green island on the Rhine River. It uses kummel in its attempt to associate it with Germany's national caraway spirit.

Green creme de menthe has a tendency to overwhelm a cocktail with the scent and flavor of mouthwash. It is rare that the balance is right to make for an appetizing cocktail. This is one of those rare occasions.The gin and kummel come through and give an earthy lower register to the airy mint notes. The honey in the kummel is warming and delicious as well and takes the flavor profile out of the mouthwash zone.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination gin used)
  • 1/4 oz.kummel
  •  1/2 oz. green creme de menthe
  • 1/4 oz. lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
