1 1⁄2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice

Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a frozen coupe glass.


You might use less orange flower water.


My pal Mike G. kibitz'ed on this cocktail and suggested the orange flower water as a substitute for the lavender syrup of the original cocktail.

  • If omitting the egg white, reduce the orange flower water and add barspoon of syrup. Probably need the syrup even if using egg white as it would make this drink even drier than as written. — ★★★
