2⁄3 oz Bénédictine
2⁄3 oz Herbal liqueur, Yellow Chartreuse
2⁄3 oz Lemon juice

Shake over ice and double-strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass or coupette.


Original recipe calls for Chartreuse M.O.F. (Cuvée des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Sommeliers), but G. Regan subs Yellow Chartreuse. I was out of the Laphroaig and subbed Compass Box Peat Monster, and it worked well.

  • The sweetness of the Benedictine tames the smokiness. Very unique flavors. One of my favorites.
  • nice boozy play on The Last Word, perfect for the fall.
  • Sweet and sour but also earthy and smoky. Like lemonade that had been buried underground for a while.
