golden gate

2 oz Dry Gin (Beefeater)
1/2 oz Blanc Vermouth (Dolin)
1/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/4 oz Cynar

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I recalled a drink that I had spotted in the 2020 Community Cocktails book called the Golden Gate that seemed like it would make a delightful Martini riff. The recipe was crafted by bartender Brennan Sheppard while working at Rob Roy in Seattle. Once prepared, the Golden Gate proffered an orange, juniper, and herbal aroma. Next, honey and white grape notes on the sip crossed over into gin and vegetal herbal flavors on the swallow.
