Review:

Jordan Smith, describes his creation as "bright, herbaceous, subtly smoky, and refreshingly bittersweet." We concur!

History:

Named after the 1929 Georgia O'Keefe painting due to both the shades of yellow, white and green, and for the inclusion of a southwestern ingredient - mezcal.

Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Jordan Smith, Head Bartender at Le Coucou French restaurant in SoHo, New York City, USA.
