1 1/2 oz House Amer Picon Replica (*)
1/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 barspoon (1/8 oz) Lemon Juice
1 barspoon (1/8 oz) Grapefruit Juice
1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a Highball glass filled with crushed ice. Express the oils from a long, wide grapefruit peel over the top of the drink and garnish with the peel in a Horse's Neck style. Float 1/4 oz Pastis d'Autrefois on top and add a straw.
(*) Averna-based and infused with Seville orange peel and other ingredients.
Two Wednesdays ago, Andrea and I visited Craigie on Main for drinks. For a starter, Ted wanted to showcase a drink he had been working on using their house made Amer Picon replica. The combination of rye, Picon, and floated pastis reminded me of Matthew Schrage's End of Days; however, Ted's drink utilized a straw such that the pastis notes entered the flavor profile at the end like they did in Eastern Standard's Blue Parrot.
