This is the Green Chartreuse version of the Alaska Cocktail, and much of what is written there applies to the Emerald as well. Note that the warning regarding the high potency of the Alaska is even more relevant here, as the gin in this drink is actually watering down the drink, as Green Chartreuse is a robust 110-proof spirit.

3 oz. London Dry Gin
1 oz. Green Chartreuse
3 dashes Fee Bros. Orange Bitters

Directions: Stir in an ice-filled mixing glass and strain

Glass: Cocktail Coupe

Garnish: Express a lime peel over the drink, rub it around the rim of the glass, and drop it into the center of the drink.

Tasting Notes: All the crispness and juniper notes of a classic martini, with a deep herbal punch, and a silkier mouthfeel. The high-proof is masked a bit by the blend of complex flavors, but you definitely know you’re drinking an alcohol-only cocktail as you knock back this one.
