I bought a bottle of green chartreuse to match my yellow. Now I needed recipes to try out the green chartreuse. I found a martini of sorts called the cat's eye, which seemed apropros.
1.5 oz Bombay sapphire
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth (I used Noilly Prat)
Garnish with a twist of orange peel
This was not an unpleasant drink. Everett mistook the Chartreuse for Absinthe, which I can see with its herby flavors. But it was perhaps a little to sweet for my taste. I added a few dashes of orange bitters after a few sips and that helped balance the flavor a bit. The color is nice, a translucent green that is very ethereal. All in all, though, I think I prefer the green vesper, made with absinthe.....
On to the next cocktail!!!!
