This is one bad-ass drink. It is not only the proportions, but, with the exception of the gin, everything in it is above 40 proof. It's a Chartreuse bomb of a drink too, with so many herbal flavors it is overwhelming. I'd consider it a flawed drink with the exception that I think that this was done intentionally to stupefy the drinker with flavor and potency as it did me.

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 1 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • dash orange bitters
  • lemon twist
  • cherry
Combine all ingredients except twist and cherry in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with fruit.
