This is an old classic that is spiced up with newer liqueurs. Try a Gypsy made with French liquor and Old Tom style gin to get the pre-prohibition flavor of the cocktail. This is a very refreshing citrus cocktail.

  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 3/4 oz. green Chartreuse 
  • 1/2 oz. St. Germain
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist or wheel.

St. Germain is French elderflower and citrus liquor. It may taste a little bit like soap served neat, but it really takes a back seat to your gin or other spicier liquors like Chartreuse. Try it in a couple of drinks or with your champagne for a flowery kick.
