Warday's Cocktail

Whoever this Warday is, he's a strange dude. Here are combined some of the most unusual liquors to make a great cocktail. I wonder how he came up with it. I also made a few improvements to the drink as well. I used Bluecoat Barrel Reserve gin because I figured it would fit in fine with barrel aged apple brandy. I also didn't deign to use yellow Chartreuse (the sweeter, milder version) when I had the bitterer green. Carpano Antica Formula rounded the whole thing out into one of the most nuanced drinks I've made in months.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (Bluecoat Barrel Reserve used)
  • 1 oz. apple brandy (Catoctin Creek Quarter Branch used)
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth (Antica Formula used)
  • 1 tbsp. yellow Chartreuse (green used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
