.5oz Green Chartreuse
.5oz Dolin Blanc
.25oz Fernet Branca
Scant bar spoon Maraschino
Add the Campari, Gin, Green Chartreuse, Dolin Blanc and Maraschino to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Rim a chilled cocktail glass with the Fernet Branca (do not discard the excess). Strain into the glass and express the oils of the orange twist, rim the glass and leave it in the glass.
- In an effort to combine two favorites, Green Chartreuse and Campari, The Bittersweet Garden came to life. The Campari, Chartreuse, and Fernet build a complex interplay of herbs, bitters and citrus, while the botanicals in the gin build a base. A hint of sweet cherry Maraschino adds some contrast to the predominantly bitter herbal flavor.
- Sweet and citrus botanicals on the nose. Initially, The Bittersweet Garden is all sugar and orange on the tongue. The herbal complexity and licorice in the Chartreuse and Fernet build to a sweet cherry, citrus and lingering bitter finish.
- The Bittersweet Garden is perfect for those who enjoy the combination of herbs and botanicals with bitter amari, contrasted with a hint of sweet cherry to balance it all out. Tasting somewhere between the classic Fancy Free and the borrowed Eeyore’s Requiem, this one is sure to please.
