    This is a great drink. I do prefer the 1.5 gin, 1/2 chartreuse and vermouth with lemon peel which is obviously a less sweet version. Classic either way.
  • Mason Yarnell
    Agreed, Brandon. Classic either way. I too prefer the less sweet version.
  • Blackbird Bar
    An ounce of Green Chartreuse ain't cheap either!!!
  • KC Wolff
    Sweet vermouth or dry? Sweet I'm guessing.
