Treo, serving cocktails, small plates and art shows at 3835 Tulane Ave., represents a remarkable transformation of an area that was run-down and derelict for years. With The Green Parrot, Treo bartender Lizzy Fitzsousa has transformed an older classic cocktail with brand-new ingredients.
The inspiration was the Vesper, a James Bond invention, jazzed up into the present day with Euphrosine Gin #9; and a house-made lime cordial originally created for a daiquiri.
2 oz. Euphrosine Gin #9
0.5 oz. Montanaro Vermouth
0.5 oz. Dolin Blanc
0.5 oz. House-made lime cordial
6 drops ‘Elamakule Tiki Bitters
Shaken, strained and served up in a coupe or cocktail glass.
