the herbivore

1 1/2 oz Genever (Bols)
3/4 oz Cardamaro
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse
2 dash Celery Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe and garnish with a lemon twist.

Two Thursdays ago, the cooler evening weather made me seek out a stirred drink. The one that stood out as right for the moment was the Herbivore by Juliet Ceballos of the City House Nashville that was published in Punch Drinks. The Herbivore seemed like a win for I have found that Genever and Cardamaro are a great duo in drinks like the Walking Spanish, Deck Hand, and the Kid with the Replaceable Head. Moreover, Green Chartreuse and celery bitters felt like wonderful accents to bring the balance a touch more to the herbaceous side.
The Herbavore proffered a lemon and malt aroma that gave way to a malt and grape sip. Next, Genever and herbal flavors on the swallow finished off with elegant Green Chartreuse and celery notes.
