2 oz Gin

1⁄2 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
1⁄2 oz Cynar
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.


At the gin bar that I was working at, I created this after having recently made a guest The Drink of Laughter and Forgetting. I thought about how well Green Chartreuse and Cynar pair, and my mind then lept to how both liqueurs partner well with curaçao. For a structure, I considered a sweet vermouth-gin direction akin to the Bijou, and for a name, I dubbed it after our location in the Continuum Building -- a newly built apartment complex with stores and restaurants on the first floor and across from Harvard Business School.
