Total time: 30 minutes
  • Rosemary Syrup
  • 8 large rosemary sprigs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • Cocktail
  • Green Chartreuse
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces Hacienda del Sotol Plata
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 dash Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Rosemary sprig
  1. Make the rosemary simple syrup: In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, combine the rosemary, sugar and 2 cups water and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve and store in a covered container or bottle. The rosemary syrup will keep, refrigerated, up to 2 weeks.
  2. Rinse a Collins glass with the Chartreuse and discard the excess. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the sotol, lime juice, lemon juice, ½ ounce of the rosemary syrup and the egg white. Cover and shake for 2 minutes. Strain into the Chartreuse-rinsed glass. Add a dash of the bitters on top and swirl delicately. Garnish with the rosemary sprig and serve.
