destiny street

1 1/2 oz Brandy
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Kronan Swedish Punsch
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with orange oil (here it was a lemon twist).
A few Sundays ago at work, I made the Destiny Street again to take a photo. The drink was my Richard Hell and the Voidoids-inspired recipe that got me into the semi-finals for the Copper & Kings' MixTape national competition. The idea was perhaps inspired by a Champs-Élysées crossed with the Van Dieman from the Café Royal Cocktail Book. Initially, the original version of the drink contained a dash of Angostura Bitters like the Champs-Élysées, but that took the profile into something too darkly spiced.
