green hornet

2 oz Old Overholt Rye
1/2 oz Cognac
1/2 oz Amaro Nardini
1 barspoon Green Chartreuse
2 dash Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
At Barrel House in Beverly, bartender John Wierszchalek wanted to send me home with one for the road, or in this case the commuter rail back to Boston. He regretted that we were on the other end of the bar for he wanted to showcase one of his creations that he dubbed the Green Hornet. Despite the small amount of Green Chartreuse in the drink, it definitely contributed greatly to its bouquet. A malty sip had a richness from the Amaro Nardini's caramel. And finally, the swallow displayed the rye and Cognac combination that works great in drinks like the Vieux Carré along with a beautiful pairing of chocolate-herbal from the Nardini and green-herbal from the Chartreuse.
