This is a better option than the classic. Use a good dry gin and vermouth for this.
1 oz dry gin
3/4 oz yellow chartreuse
3/4 oz dry vermouth
1/2 oz lemon juice
In a martini glass pour a splash of absinthe, coat glass and drink what remains. Express lemon juice as zesting the peel into glass as well. Add other ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake well and serve in glass with lemon peel to garnish.
This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
