The Dreaming of Zen is simply interesting and delightful with a full range of flavors, including green tea, melon, mango, pepper, mint and nutmeg. There's a sweetness, a hint of fruit, and then that kick of pepper and mint. Somehow, it all comes together in a calming, creamy cocktail that is quite comforting.

This cocktail is perfect for the holidays, with dessert, or anytime you simply want to escape to a peaceful world.

*Editor's Note December 22, 2015: Zen Green Tea Liqueur was a very nice liqueur though I have learned from Suntory that it was discontinued. I am searching for a substitute - either commercial or DIY - and will update this recipe when a suitable option is found.
