  • A funny drink--the green color seems a bit cheesy but the sophisticated chartreuse dominates the taste. — ★★★

Just an FYI: The Appleton Special line was rebranded as Kingston 62 in 2020 in case anyone wants to stick to the brand specifically called out in the recipe.

Tasty drink. The chartreuse really is front and center in the taste profile, but the other elements play nicely in the background supporting the chartreuse. I made it using Appleton Signature and OFTD.
