Velvet Mafia (Taïwan connexion #5)

1 oz Green Chartreuse
12 oz Falernum, Velvet Falernum
12 oz Averna
1 oz Lime juice
1 ds Bitters, Angostura orange
1 spg Rosemary
Shake, strain in chilled coupe, burn slightly rosemary sprig (cut to fit inclined in the coupe). Serve.
The drink was really good, With chartreuse front and a lot of spice. I did not get the proportions. The drink served was quiet sweet but rosemary burnt scent balanced a bit the sweet perception. I think the ratio was equal parts or approaching. I uped lime, decreased Averna since Chartreuse was front and decreased falernum.
Taïwanese cocktails seems to be quiet sweet. Very difficult to find drier drinks. Even when you ask for something not too sweet. Their palates seem to be accustomed to very sweet desserts and drinks (shaved ice with fruits and syrups, bubble teas, etc...)
