Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass.

Notes

Substitute Ransom Old Tom Gin if there's not an oaked genever in your market, but don't use any bitters other than the Bitter Truth--it's far more floral and less vegetal than other celery bitters.

Nice drink but subbed St George's aged Dry Rye gin, 3/4 oz chartreuse and 1 dash bitters. Only had Fee Bros, fully agree a more floral bitters would be preferable. 


In response to a curation request about the volume of Chartreuse and bitters, I did some looking. The Bitter Truth link is dead, so I removed it. Googling Fletcher Christian cocktail returns two hits - KC and a Wordpress blog whose cache shows a drink called the Oude Fletcher which is similar, but has 1/2 ounce of BT Celery bitters. Without confirmation that the drink as written is wrong, I'm going to leave this alone. Thanks,  Zachary
