For this cocktail I started with the idea of a gin martini, but wanted to add Green Chartreuse into it. I knew that I had a lot of hefty botanicals here, and balancing it would be a challenge. I love the Vya vermouth but it doesn’t always play nice with other complex spirits.
After much trial and error, I ended up with a ratio I liked. To push it over the edge, why not add some hop bitters. i don’t have a name I love, so right now I’m using Green Martini as a place-holder. Any suggestions?
2 oz High Wire Barrel-Rested Gin
.75 oz Vya Extra Dry Vermouth
.75 oz Green Chartreuse
6 Drops Bittercube Hop Bitters
Stir on ice and strain into a chilled glass. No garnish needed.
