The Expanse Cocktails Project

Expanse Cocktail #48
Praxidike Meng

Dr. Praxidike Meng is a botanist on Ganymede, working to create more efficient soybeans. When his daughter Mei is abducted during the Battle of Ganymede, his search for her forces him to face interplanetary war and internal conflict that test his natural optimism and humanity.

This drink was always going to be intensely botanical - we couldn’t resist including Prax’s life’s work. It tastes smooth and balanced, but is unexpectedly strong - like him.


  • 6 parts genever (jonge)
  • 1 part elderflower liqueur
  • 1 part green Chartreuse
  • 1 dash lime juice


Shake all ingredients with ice until cold and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a fresh basil leaf.
