Alaska Cocktail

2 14 oz Gin
34 oz Yellow Chartreuse
Instructions
Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail glass.
Notes
The ratios suggest for this cocktail vary from 2:1 to 8:1. I prefer a relatively dry 6:1. Serve very cold to avoid excess sweetness. Alternatively, use more Chartreuse and balance with lemon, dry sherry, or top with dry sparkling wine.
From other users
  • Make with another recipe calling for 1 oz of chartreuse, which required lemon to balance it. Next time try this recipe with 3/8 oz lemon juice. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Used Haymans OT & a splash of Ransoms, to the amt of 2.25 gin, .75 Chartreuse, & 2 big dashes orange bitters... — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Haymans, Strega, and Regan’s. Good Strega feature. — ☆☆☆☆

A user noted that this drink is now 3:1 though Dan's original note (and the drink) were 6:1. I've left that there to preserve his (drier) preference. Thanks,  Zachary
