pirate radio

1 1/2 oz Pineapple Rum (Plantation)
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Suze Gentian Liqueur

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orchid or tulip leaf (omit).
Two Fridays ago, I had spotted a drink called Pirate Radio in my Instagram feed, and I was able to track it back to @nycmixology a/k/a Jason Walsh. The structure reminded me of Sother Teague's version of the Disco Ball, and the combination of Green Chartreuse and gentian liqueur was one that worked rather well in the Maroon Beret. Here, things began with an earthy, floral, and herbal bouquet. Next, light orchard fruit notes on the sip tuned into pineapple, herbal, and herbaceous flavors on the swallow.
