critical mass

2 oz Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey
1/2 oz Aperol
1/4 oz Punt e Mes
1/8 oz Green Chartreuse

Stir with ice and strain into a Nick & Nora glass.
Two Saturdays ago, I was perusing a set of online flashcards when I spotted a drink called Critical Mass. I was able to identify the source as the Burritt Room in San Francisco via a 2010 Thrillist article. Overall, I was lured in since it reminded me of Eastern Standard's Prospect Park with a hint of Chartreuse instead of Maraschino. Once prepared, the Critical Mass met the nose with rye and herbaceous aromas. Next, grape and orange notes on the sip led into rye, herbal, and herbaceous flavors on the swallow.
