Description

Puritan CocktailThis is a very old formula. 

I had long thought that the complex herbaceous audacity of green Chartreuse would be a perfect match for a gin of great character. Recent experimental evidence indicates a clear need for further research...

I really want to try this with Barr Hill Gin and with Uncle Val's Botanical Gin.  

Ingredients

2 1⁄4ozGin
1⁄2ozDry Vermouth
1⁄4ozChartreuse
1dsOrange Bitters

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Notes

The old recipes for this call for yellow chartreuse, a simpler, less potent, and less expensive variety of Chartreuse, and thus more sensible to keep in a bar. The green Chartreuse is a natural partner to gin, so use it if you have it!
