12 oz Yellow Chartreuse

Works well with an 'assertive' gin.
History
"The Northern Lights is a slight variation of the Alaska cocktail inspired by the bold Douglas fir character of Terroir gin, which draws the imagination to the deep forests of the north. A touch of absinthe enhances the floral sweetness of the chartreuse, which vibrantly contrasts with the savory pine. Knock back a few of these and you'll swear you can see the Aurora Borealis."
