anchor of light

2 oz La Caravedo Pisco
1/2+ oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Falernum

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

Two Wednesdays ago, I ventured down to Stoddard's where bartender Keith Corbett was at the stick. For a drink, I asked for his "Anchor If Light" from the menu, and I was curious about the nautical meaning especially with the sailor's ties to pisco. Keith explained that the name was "Anchor Of Light" after the video game, and the difference was due to autocorrect when submitting his drinks for the menu. Regardless, the idea of an herbal and spiced Pisco Punch sounded delightful.
The Anchor Of Light presented a pisco and pineapple aroma with hints of herbal notes. Next, lime and a vague fruitiness on the sip led into pisco, pineapple, clove, and herbal notes on the swallow.
