1 1⁄2 oz Old Tom Gin, Ransom
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1⁄2 oz Herbal liqueur, Yellow Chartreuse
1⁄4 oz Averna
1⁄4 oz Simple syrup

Shake, strain, up.


Eric Witz: "This really surprises me how well all of these disparate elements work together. I was dubious thinking the strongly flavored spirits and citrus would clash but it’s remarkably well balanced."
