Leatherneck Cocktail – Original 1940s Frank Farrell Recipe

Think of this as a green whiskey Margarita. This cocktail gets its name from the strange army fatigue green color it has which is achieved with the use of blue orange liqueur. Like any of the blue orange liqueur cocktails in this app I just use a drop of blue food coloring so I don’t have to actually buy the blue one.

The Leatherneck was invented a little after WWII by former marine Frank Farrell and true to its name, this drink is an ass kicker. It goes now strong and gets the job done.
