This is one of those masterpieces of aperitifs and liquors that really comes together well. I've been waiting for months to get all the right ingredients and it was really worth it. I did make a small modification because I don't have yellow Chartreuse, and the green can be overpowering. So I swapped out the amounts of Chartreuse and Lillet. You'll see what I did, it makes a softer drink that is easier to enjoy.
  •  2 oz. cognac
  • 1/2 oz. Dubonnet Rouge
  • 1/2  oz. (1 oz. modified) Lillet
  • 1 oz. Yellow Chartreuse (1/2 oz. Green Chartreuse modified)
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
