FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What gives the Green Diesel its distinctive color?

The distinctive color of Green Diesel comes from the Aftershock (Blue) which, when mixed with the yellow hue of the energy drink, creates a unique green appearance.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in Green Diesel compare to other cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 3%, Green Diesel has a relatively low alcohol content compared to many classic and contemporary cocktails that often range from 10% to 40% alcohol by volume (ABV). This makes it a lighter option.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Green Diesel not shaken?

The Green Diesel is not shaken but rather stirred to mix the ingredients gently. This is likely to avoid over-aeration, which could affect the texture and carbonation level from the energy drink, maintaining its intended flavor and effervescence.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the ideal way to serve a Green Diesel for the best taste?

The ideal way to serve a Green Diesel is cold, in a highball glass, topped up with the energy drink after pouring in the Aftershock (Blue). This ensures a fresh, energizing taste while maintaining the drink's visual appeal and carbonation.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute Aftershock (Blue) with another liqueur if I can't find it?

Yes, you can substitute Aftershock (Blue) with another liqueur if it's not available. A good substitute would be any blue-colored, mint-flavored liqueur to mimic the color and somewhat the taste; however, expect a variation in the final flavor profile of the drink.
