This drink belongs to the family of "opera" drinks because it is named after Enrico Caruso, the famous opera singer. Most of these drinks have gin in common, like the Cabaret, Bijou and Opera, and linked only by topic to the Calypso and Maime Taylor. The thing about the gin opera drinks is that they all have brilliant colors, and this emerald wonder is no exception. I was going to say something else positive about the drink, but that all ends here. While it is better than mouthwash, it had better be Enrico Caruso's own favorite recipe. Otherwise, it suffers from the fate of so many drinks that try to achieve a color with no attention to the flavor.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. green creme de menthe
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
