Alaska Cocktail (aka Emerald Martini)

Description
Gin, Herbal liqueur, Orange bitters
Ingredients
Instructions
Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail glass.
Notes
The ratios suggest for this cocktail vary from 2:1 to 8:1. I've selected a relatively dry 6:1. Serve very cold to avoid excess sweetness. Alternatively, use more Chartreuse and balance with lemon, dry sherry, or top with dry sparkling wine.

Make with another recipe calling for 1 oz of chartreuse, which required lemon to balance it. Next time try this recipe with 3/8 oz lemon juice. (4 stars)
