Comments

I used germain-robin brandy and la gitana manzanilla sherry, and assumed the chartreuse was green. The sherry doesn't get lost, which I appreciate. It's like a lighter, fresher last word- definitely recommended!

This is just such a beautiful use of manzanilla in a modern cocktail. For lack of celery bitters, I used Ango, with good results. Might try something different next time. Delicious.
