1 1⁄2 oz Rye (I used Rittenhouse)
1⁄2 oz Mezcal
1⁄2 oz Sweet vermouth
1⁄4 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
1⁄4 oz Curaçao, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.


I was inspired by the Green Chartreuse-Curaçao combination from the Knight (in David Embury's 1948 book) to take it in a Manhattan direction. I opted for the rye-mezcal split spirit to not only bring in complexity, and I find that agave spirits work amazingly well with Green Chartreuse. My first attempt was with Punt e Mes akin to a Greenpoint or Redhook, but its added depth muddied up the flavors. I remade the drink with regular sweet vermouth and was quite pleased. For a name, I dubbed this one the Broadway Nights given the Knight and the Manhattan influences; Broadway Nights is the name of a 1927 movie featuring Barbara Stanwyck.
