Notes
Some prefer a bit more Gin. Herbal and funky, initially sweet, then sour. Very balanced. If made with Genever, it's a Latest Word.
History
Robert Hess (Drink Boy) suggest 1/2 oz each. I've scaled this up a bit to a 3 oz cocktail.
From other users
  • Use 1 oz gin for a slightly dryer version. Stefan loved it. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • We both rated it about 3.5. Not necessarily put into regular rotation, but it's a good Chartreuse drink. Very interesting and unique flavors. Made equal parts, good. Might try a bit more gin per others' suggestions. — ☆☆☆☆
  • I prefer this with the gin doubled to 1 1/2 oz and the other ingredients reduced to 1/2 oz. Drops from a 4 to a 3 with equal parts. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Excellent sour. I can imagine an absinthe rinse, or Peychaud's. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Genever Bols 3 oz Luzardo 1 oz Lime juice 1.25oz Green Chartreuse 1.25 oz
  • Made with 1oz gin (Beefeater). This is a terrific drink. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • I used key lime juice, which added a nice tanginess. — ☆☆☆☆
  • 1oz brokers — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Very nice complexity. Varying the proportions has a big impact on the final result. Gin is a nice base, chartreuse adds some complexity, maraschino sweetens it up, and the line keeps everything in check. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Gin- sweet, sour
  • sub out gin for mezcal — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Alternative to La Lumiere which substitutes St. Germain instead of Luxardo — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Gin up to 1 1/4 oz. Everything else down to 1/2 oz. Try chartreuse as both a rinse and an ingredient
  • My version is actually 1oz of each. This is a great drink. — ☆☆☆☆☆

Tried crème de cassis and

Tried crème de cassis and Yellow Chartreuse instead of maraschino and green...

Equal parts, but added 1/3 more gin from old raj 110 abv + 1 dash boker's. Nice, a bit sweet, strong notes of cassis
