Chic Chartreuse

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!

Thanks, Carthusian Monks!!!!
