The Orgiastic Greenlight at Lux Central

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.

This week: The Orgiastic Greenlight at Lux Central

Lux Coffee Bar, the trendy Downtown Phoenix hot spot for java and hip kid eye candy, has always been a daytime destination to show non-locals our "big city" cool. 

Since the spot moved next door to expand space, cool ideas, and its hours, it's no surprise Lux Central has also expanded our local cool. 

The Orgiastic Greenlight speaks for itself, using the new "it" liqueur Chartreuse and served in an absinthe rinsed vintage cocktail glass. Allow 15 minutes for this bad boy to be made and if that's a problem, enjoy your mainstream gin and tonic at the dive down the street.  

(Recipe after the jump.) 

2 oz. Plymouth Gin
1/2 oz. Green Chartreuse
1/2 lime
2 sprigs fresh thyme
pinch of sugar
Absinthe Spray

In a shaker, muddle together lime, thyme and sugar. Add gin, Chartreuse and ice. Shake and strain contents not once, but twice into a vintage cocktail glass that has been sprayed with Absinthe. Garnish this cocktail masterpiece with a lemon wheel and a sprig of thyme. Look cooler by simply holding this cocktail in your hip little hand.
