root of all evil

2 oz Ransom Old Tom Gin
1 oz Cardamaro
1/4+ oz Green Chartreuse

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with 5 drop Bittercube Root Beer Bitters (Bitter Queens Sarsaparilla Bitters).
Two Saturdays ago, I was lured in by the Root of All Evil in The Bartender's Manifesto that was different from the other two drinks by that name on the blog. This one was by Patrick Smith at the Violet Hour circa 2012 that reminded me a little of a Bijou. With the sarsaparilla bitters as a garnish, the Root of All Evil began with a root beer aroma. Next, a grape sip flowed into herbal, juniper, and spice notes on the swallow.
