About this Cocktail

The Alaska cocktail first appeared in the Savoy Cocktail Book as a combo of gin, yellow Chartreuse and orange bitters. At Le Sel in Nashville, bartender Aaron Elam sprays a mist of sherry over the top of the drink for extra aromatics. Don’t have a mister on hand? A few drops will do the trick.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. gin
  • ¾ oz. yellow Chartreuse
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Amontillado sherry
  • Lemon twist
Preparation:

Combine the gin, Chartreuse and bitters in a mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill. Strain into a chilled coupe and either drop a few dashes of sherry on the top, or put the sherry in an atomizer and spray a fine mist over the top. Twist a lemon peel over the drink and discard.
