Lime, Gin, and Chartreuse

This Lime, Gin, and Chartreuse cocktail is reminiscent of the Gin and Chartreuse, and it might even be better? This drink is dainty, yet potent. It’s herbal, but a bit soft. It’s easy to make, and even easier to enjoy.

Lime, Gin, and Chartreuse
Herbal. Spicy. Bold.

Chartreuse is a highly herbal concoction made by French Monks. The recipe is top secret, and the green Chartreuse version is more potent and more flavorful than the yellow Chartreuse, No worries – the yellow variety still packs a flavor wallop into a gorgeous bottle. Because of the overpowering flavors of herbs, spices, and botanicals, there’s a good chance your gin choice is no match for this. Go with something reliable and smooth and neutral in the gin department.

Notes on the Lime, Gin, and Chartreuse cocktail.

While it doesn’t seem like 1/2 of an ounce is much, the flavor packed goodness of Chartreuse goes a long way. I would definitely make this again, but I would use about 1/4 of an ounce. I’m not sure I could even handle the green Chartreuse!

The lime really evens out the harsher edges of this cocktail. I don’t think you readily identify the citrus as being lime, per se, so add more if you want more of an herbal margarita cocktail?

Do sip slowly and respectfully – this drink is bold and delicious.
