3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz Amaro di Angostura
3/4 oz Pineapple Shrub
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

As a second drink, I took Andrea's recommendation to request one of Sahil Mehta's drinks of the day that she had the last time she was in. Sahil explained that he had named this one Titania after the Fairy Queen in A Midsummer Night's Dream for he appreciated the grandness of the two big names in the ingredients list -- Angostura and Chartreuse.
The Titania gave forth a Green Chartreuse herbal aroma with hints of pineapple. Next, caramel and lime on the sip gave way to dark spice notes, brighter herbal flavors from the Chartreuse, and pineapple elements on the swallow with a clove-driven finish. Later as the drink warmed up, the swallow became more savory from the shrub's vinegar.
