Karmic Sutures

2 oz Añejo tequila
14 oz Mezcal
12 oz Green Chartreuse
2 ds Chocolate bitters
Ice. Stir. drink.
Amazing cocktail. one of my favorites to make at home. You'd be surprised how balanced and easy to drink this is being composed of such strong ingredients.
I found the basis for the recipe on the sfgate link, but added chocolate bitters. Also, their original name was terrible.
From other users
  • Subtle flavors. I was concerned that the ratios would make the Chartreuse overwhelm the mescal, but the tastes are well balanced. On borderline of 4 stars — ☆☆☆
  • So-so. Tequila with smoke and an herbal kick. Seems to be missing something. Maybe it was my mood. — ☆☆

Tried the original recipe

Tried the original recipe without the bitter and with the garnish (though I agree - terrible name!) and this is kind of a brilliant drink. It's so proofed I wouldn't think it would work, but it is really well-balanced and you get all three ingredients. This is a great drink for the high rollers who want to throw around the good añejo.
