A bit sweet, a bit sour, a bit herbal, a bit pungent, it has everything, including the two ingredients cocktail geeks love most: maraschino liqueur and green Chartreuse.
Spirits columnist Jason Wilson prefers Plymouth gin in this cocktail. As always, maraschino is NOT the juice of maraschino cherries.
- 3/4 ounce gin
- Juice from about 2 limes (3/4 ounce)
- 3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
- 3/4 ounce maraschino liqueur, such as Luxardo brand
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the gin, lime juice, green Chartreuse and maraschino liqueur. Shake well, then strain into a cocktail (martini) glass.
