Cloister (Revisited)

I wanted to try the Cloister again with yellow Chartreuse instead of the green stuff. I have to say it makes a big difference and I really liked how sweet (not bitter) and refreshing the drink became with the change. Yellow Chartreuse has more honey and a lower proof, which is nice. I also used fresh squeezed grapefruit juice for this so it is really yummy and balanced now that I have all the right ingredients.
  • 2 oz. gin (Filibuster Dual Cask used)
  • 1/2 oz. yellow Chartreuse
  • 1/2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
