  • Cocktail strainer


  • 1.5 oz gin London dry or Old Tom
  • ½ oz Yellow Chartreuse
  • dash orange bitters
  • lemon peel for garnish


  • Take the gin, Yellow Chartreuse and add to a tall glass.
  • Add a dash of orange bitters to the glass.
  • Add ice to the glass, then stir until cold.
  • Strain the cocktail into a coupe glass.
  • Top with the zest from a lemon peel and enjoy!


This cocktail does best with a nice London dry gin like Tanqueray or Bombay. It's also customary to use an Old Tom gin, which is more mellow than London Dry Gins, and can help balance the cocktail if you find it too herbal.
