Just mixed one with Rittenhouse, 3/4 oz syrup, 1/2 oz green Chartreuse, 1 tsp Herbsaint. Really nice. Very sweet, but I like sweet. I will also give it five stars.

Second go round - I updated the rye to Bulleit - it has a strong, piney/minty greenness that works with this cocktail. This smells rather cute and tropical. The lime and pineapple dominates. On the palate, though, this is fairly firm, with definite notes of the rye, mint, and licorice on a sweet-and-sour frame. The finish is where this shines, with the absinthe and Chartreuse working in harmony to develop minty-spicy flavors that linger.

OK, I replenished my green Chartreuse, and made this with it. I would strongly recommend dropping the pineapple to 3/4 oz and using 1/2 oz of Chartreuse if you're going that way. I know EV is hard to find, but it's worth it.

From other users

I used 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse & 3/4 oz pineapple syrup per the comments. I thought that the way the Chartreuse played with the absinthe was surprisingly lovely. (5 stars)
