Flowering Fields

Pineapple + Green Chartreuse = Crazy Delicious
1 12 oz Rye, Bulleit
1 oz Pineapple syrup (Homemade)
12 oz Lime juice
18 oz Elixir Vegetal de la Grande Chartreuse
1 bsp Absinthe
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
1 sli Lime (as garnish)
Add ingredients in a shaker over ice. Shake, double strain into a coupe. Garnish with a thin lime slice
I wll sub in 1/4 to 1/2 oz green Chartreuse for the Elixir Vegetal once I replenish my stock. I think Bulleit's Rye would be awesome here as well.
From other users
  • I used 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse & 3/4 oz pineapple syrup per the comments. I thought that the way the Chartreuse played with the absinthe was surprisingly lovely. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Made with 1/2 oz. green chartreuse. Intended to cut the pineapple syrup to 3/4 oz. and forgot, and should have--mine turned out too sweet. Fascinating flavors — ☆☆☆☆

Second go round - I updated

Second go round - I updated the rye to Bulleit - it has a strong, piney/minty greenness that works with this cocktail. This smells rather cute and tropical. The lime and pineapple dominates. On the palate, though, this is fairly firm, with definite notes of the rye, mint, and licorice on a sweet-and-sour frame. The finish is where this shines, with the absinthe and Chartreuse working in harmony to develop minty-spicy flavors that linger.

OK, I replenished my green

OK, I replenished my green Chartreuse, and made this with it. I would strongly recommend dropping the pineapple to 3/4 oz and using 1/2 oz of Chartreuse if you're going that way. I know EV is hard to find, but it's worth it.

Just mixed one with

Just mixed one with Rittenhouse, 3/4 oz syrup, 1/2 oz green Chartreuse, 1 tsp Herbsaint. Really nice. Very sweet, but I like sweet. I will also give it five stars.
