Two Tuesdays ago, I paid a visit to Island Creek Oyster Bar, and for a start, I asked bartender Vikram Hedge for the Green Harbor. When I asked about the drink's history, Vikram described how he created it with Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli's help. Vik wanted to name the drink after a beach in his fiancé's hometown of Marshfield, MA, called Green Harbor. While the mental connection to Green Chartreuse stemmed from the beach's name, his fiancé actually does not care for it, but she does enjoy the Cocchi Americano that plays a balancing role in the recipe.
