Sage and chartreuse and not much else!
|2||lf||Sage (one as garnish)|
|1⁄2||Lime (cut into wedges)|
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.
