About this Cocktail

Heard about it from O'Mara.

  • 1 part gin (Hendrick's or 209)
  • 1 part Chartreuse (maybe a little less)
  • 1 part Luxardo maraschino liqueur
  • 1 part lime juice (or a little less) OR 1 part sweet lime juice

Shake vigorously with lots of ice (aim for an ice float). Serve with ice.

    I can't take any credit for this drink - it's been around far longer than I have.

    Okay, edited. I've since seen it at Cafe Rouge here in Berkeley. They use 209. It's quite tasty.

    Had an "Unspoken Word" at Murray Circle at Cavallo Point in Sausalito earlier this week. They used Mezcal instead of Gin. It was nice if a little tart.
