Green Chartreuse is something we’ve always enjoyed, more than often in a Last Word cocktail. But as proven in this recipe Chartreuse is also a great ingredient in highballs. And even if there’s just half an ounce in this mix, you can immediately tell it’s there. The colour gives it a way, and the iconic and much recognisable taste as well of course.
And swizzles are fun. After adding all that crushed ice give the hole thing a good swizzle. It blends everything together, makes the ice do some tasty sounds and helps chilling the drink even further.
