Sage and Chartreuse Smash

Sage and chartreuse and not much else!
2 lf Sage (one as garnish)
12   Lime (cut into wedges)
1 T Honey
2 oz Chartreuse
Muddle all but the alcohol in an old fashioned glass. Add crushed ice, add alcohol, top up with more crushed ice and garnish with a second sage leaf.
Variation of Bon Appetit's chartreuse smash. I see no need for the gin, just double the chartreuse! I cut their honey down a bit (In fact, as I was in the middle of a move, I just used the maple syrup I had on hand and it was fine. Simple syrup would probably be enough).

  • I might try adding back some gin; doesn't seem like the sharpness it might lend would seem out of place. By the end this inched up to a 4. — ☆☆☆☆

Nice cocktail.  Pulled some

Nice cocktail.  Pulled some fresh sage leaves from the garden and honey from our neighbor’s hive.  Make a honey syrup or it will solidify under the crushed ice.
