Stranger Thing

Strong White spirit and stirred
1 12 oz Jamaican rum, Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum
13 oz Cognac VSOP
14 oz Dry vermouth (Mulassano)
12 oz Gran Classico (Fat)
13 oz Elixir Vegetal de la Grande Chartreuse
18 oz Orange flower water
3 ds Lavender bitters, Scrappy's
5 lf Sage
Muddle sage with rum. Mix other ingredients, very long stir, strain, frozen coupe
Wanted something dry with white overproof rum, and strong floral notes with subtle sweetness. I Like it dry like listed in the recipe. But i ve been uping amounts little by little and for a sweeter palate maybe this ratio Will be better: 3/4 gan classico, 1/3 dry vermouth, 1/4 orange flower water. Both are very different drinks. Will try sage next infused Overproof.

  • Had to adapt: Had no Gran Classico: used Monte San Costanzo Amaro. Used yellow chartreuse instead of green. Skipped the orange flower water. Had no lavender bitters: used a teaspoon of creme de violette for two drinks. — ☆☆☆☆

Used Zamaro which is similar

Used Zamaro which is similar to gran classic, and regular green chartreuse with Dolin dry vermouth, should have had a fatter pour or Zamaro but it was delicious and subdued very good!
