• 1 oz Pisco
• .75 oz St. George Green Chili Vodka
• .75 oz Freshly squeezed lime juice
• .5 oz El Guapo® Classic Greek Rose Cordial
• .5 oz Grapefruit liqueur
• .25 oz Honey syrup (1:1 honey to water)

Compère Lapin sprays Peychaud’s bitters over a stencil with an atomizer to create the bunny, but you can easily decorate at home with dashes or dots of bitters without using a fancy stencil or atomizer.
