alaska

1 1/2oz gin
3/4oz yellow chartreuse
2 dashes orange bitters

Garnish with an orange twist. Recipe: cocktailDB

Odd that I did not have the Alaska in here before now; I know I've had it before.

Yesterday I went out with my partner-in-cocktail-crime for a late lunch, and I had my very first three-martini lunch! It was weird to sit at a bar with daylight streaming in, seriously. I asked Hugh @Eastern Standard to make me a special Alaska, using the VEP Chartreuse -- and yum, it made for a really damn good drink!

Just made one of these, now that I have a bottle of yellow Chartreuse, using Citadelle gin and Regan's orange bitters. Very nice.

Of course, now I'm terribly curious why it's called the Alaska.
