This beautiful cocktail combines the herbal qualities of Gin and Chartreuse.  We used Gin Mare, which has a balanced juniper note and is distilled from olives, among other botanicals, which play perfectly with Doc Elliott’s Olive Bitters.

The nose presents juniper with a touch of woodiness, herbs and citrus. The taste is soft juniper with citrus, herbs and a hint of anise.  The finish is savory from the olives with a bit of spice.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz Gin Mare
  • 1/2 oz Quality Dry Vermouth (or 1/4 oz Dry and 1/4 oz Bianco Vermouth)
  • 1 bar spoon Chartreuse
  • 1 Dash Doc Elliott’s Olive Bitters
  • Olives for garnish
Directions:
  1. Chill a cocktail glass with ice and water
  2. Combine all ingredients, except the garnish, in a mixing glass with ice
  3. Stir to combine and chill
  4. Double strain into chilled cocktail glass
