Green WithOUT Envy
- 2.0 oz. Rye (Rittenhouse)
- 0.5 oz. Green Chartreuse
- 0.5 oz. Maurin Quina
- dash of mole bitters
Stir with ice and strain into glass.
Here’s a nice, simple execution of a simple idea. I really wanted to mix Chartreuse with chocolate. I found that any use of crème de cacao always overpowered the Chartreuse, but the mole bitters gave just the necessary hint to the rye and Chartreuse, with the Maurin Quina adding just a bit of brightness and acidity.
The name was one (we believe) conceived by Chris Deter in a cocktail evening I held for the sole purpose of coming up with names. I think this was cocktail #8 (each cocktail was only half filled) so it’s maybe understandable we don’t know the definite author. But Chris is our best guess! Don’t be jealous.
