Northern Lights (Christian Clark)

2 oz Gin, St. George Terroir
12 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 ds Absinthe, St. George
1 ds Orange bitters
Stir and strain into a cocktail glass. Twist a lemon peel over the top and discard the peel.
Works well with an 'assertive' gin.
"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."
