Tonight's venture is a recreation of the delicious Hemmingway (sic) Revival cocktail at Peche. I did not know the ratios used in my drink last night, but acquired some chartreuse and cocchi americano so figured I'd give it a go.
2 small drinks:
2 oz Cocchi Americano
1 oz Luxardo
1 oz Yellow Chartreuse
Juice of one small lemon
Shake and serve on the rocks with a maraschino cherry
Well, this drink tasted much stronger than the bar version, but not in a bad way. The chartreuse imparts a very distinct flavor that is very herby but not in a spicy way. It has some sweetness to it as well, and that is complemented by the Luxardo. I really enjoyed this drink, and will definitely make it again soon and often!
