Alaska Forest

Variant of Alaska cocktail using Douglas fir eau de vie
1 12 oz Gin, Beefeater
34 oz Eau de vie of Douglas Fir, Clear Creek
12 oz Green Chartreuse
Stir for 30 seconds, strain into profoundly cold coupe. No garnish.
Heady, herbal, strong, bracing. Not for the faint of heart, generally one is enough as an apéro. Any classic London Dry would be appropriate.

  • I like this more than the Alaska cocktail. I also lives up to the name. This is a fantastic herbally piney stirred drink. — ☆☆☆☆

I'm under the weather with something called "para-influenza," which apparently is a legal term for "hatin' life," and this drink is treating me just right.

Just catching up with the site, and I appreciate your comments. Surprised you have that kinda eau de vie, it's not too common but man is it original and fun to use in weird drink formulas.
It takes a strong man or woman to enjoy an Alaska Forest! Hope you follow @52martinis on Twitter too.
