echo lake

1 oz Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
1 oz Green Chartreuse
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
2 dash Orange Bitters
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a coupe glass.
The other drink I asked bartender Sam Oliveri for at No. 9 Park was the Echo Lake which reminded me of the Green Ghost. It had been months since I had seen a tempting egg white drink on a menu, so I was definitely game. Once strained into a coupe, the Echo Lake shared a smoke aroma with Green Chartreuse's herbal accents. On the palate, a creamy smooth lime sip gave way to a softened mezcal and Chartreuse on the swallow with an orange finish.
