1 1/2 oz Old Overholt Rye
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz St. Germain
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

Two Mondays ago, I stopped into Spoke in Davis Square. There, I found a seat in front of bartender California Gold and asked for the Prosector off of the chalk board menu. Cali explained how the recipe was created by Joey Packard at Drink and named by Rachel Maddow. The Prosecutor was Josey's crack at a Last Word variation, but in the end, things were better balanced in this 3:1:1:1 ratio than in a Last Word-like equal parts format.
The rye whiskey's aroma joined the floral notes of St. Germain and the herbal ones of Yellow Chartreuse on the nose. Next, a lemon, malt, and honey sip gave way to a rye, herbal, and floral swallow.
