2 1⁄4 oz Gin
3⁄4 oz Herbal liqueur, Yellow Chartreuse
Instructions

Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail glass.

Notes

The ratios suggest for this cocktail vary from 2:1 to 8:1. I prefer a relatively dry 6:1. Serve very cold to avoid excess sweetness. Alternatively, use more Chartreuse and balance with lemon, dry sherry, or top with dry sparkling wine.

Curated this - in the Savoy (cited at the link), it's a 3/4 gin, 1/4 Yellow Chartreuse drink with no bitters. Variations abound.... Thanks,  Zachary


A user noted that this drink is now 3:1 though Dan's original note (and the drink) were 6:1. I've left that there to preserve his (drier) preference. Thanks,  Zachary
