Excellent cocktail! I was looking for something to mix with white whiskey, which to me has extreme grass/floral/fruit notes...and doesn't, IMHO, work with traditional mahattan/old fashioned type recipes. I knew (in my taste-mind) that Green Chartreuse would be one of the ingredients, and lo and behold, here it is. Following the suggestions in "Notes", I cut the amounts of the sweet and sour components (lemon, chartreuse and maraschino) to 1/2 oz apiece...and added a garnish of a sticky and genuine Maraschino cherry to the bottom of the cocktail glass (I used a small round bottom up glass for service) for a bit more sweetness. It was delicious...my remark upon first tasting was "now THIS is a great cocktail recipe!"
