Green with Envy Recipe by Tobin Shea | The Silk Road Cocktail Collection

Follow Redbird Bar Director Tobin Shea’s simple instructions below for the Green with Envy cocktail. Green with Envy is inspired by sharbat, the yoghurt drinks from India, Iran, and Pakistan. This sharbat is a close cousin of sherbert, the frozen treat which creates a refreshing and creamy cocktail.

1 oz Cucumber Syrup*
¾ oz Pressed Lime

1 Cucumber, seeded and chopped
Equal parts sugar
