Made this tonight, but with

Made this tonight, but with an attempt to scale it down - I prefer my cocktails much closer to 3 oz than 4. I see what Mr. Kilgore was trying to do here - there's a commonality to rye, Benedictine and Green Chartreuse in that they're all green aromas and flavors. So mine was more like 2 oz/.5/.5, and it needed..... something. I tossed to mint in to the stirring pitcher, and that helped somewhat. Maybe some Fernet would be helpful to dry it out, as in the Monk's Revenge

Thanks,

Zachary
