SWEET GESUS (that’s a @myfavoritemurder reference—any murderinos out there?!) — I NEED A DRINK. I made this guy earlier this week and loved it so much I couldn’t wait to have another. It’s from the @deathandcompany book and is perfect, so I barely adapted it. Green chartreuse has been a favorite of mine since I visited NOLA in January and took chartreuse shots with the bartenders at @cochon_nola—which they called the little green monster. So good. Green chartreuse is a good investment for your bar, and even though it’s pricey it will last for awhile. (Unless you get hooked on the little green monsters. In which case I can’t help you.)
I subbed in the sweet vermouth I had opened in my fridge, a lovely cocchi di torino. How do people own more than a couple vermouths at once? Why are the bottles so big? WHY!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This cocktail is super booze forward and ideal for the weekend. If you already have your cocktail set for tonight, whip this one up tomorrow. Cheers, happy Friday!
1.5 oz dry gin
1 oz green chartreuse
1 oz campano antica vermouth (I used @giuliococchi)
1 dash orange bitters (I used grapefruit)
Citrus twist for garnish (I used orange)
Rinse a coupe with Campari. Combine all other ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into coupe. Garnish with the twist!
