Jewel Cocktail

The name describes this drink well. It is clear and deep looking in the glass with lots of rich and complex flavors. It is almost too much when made with Bombay sapphire and might be improved if made with an aged gin to muddy the flavors a little more. Like the Bijou, the more pre-prohibition you can go with the gin, the better the flavor.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes bitters
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add cherry garnish.
