Sage and Chartreuse Smash

Description
Sage and chartreuse and not much else!
Ingredients
1lfSage (fresh leaf)
12sliLime (cut into wedges)
1THoney
2ozChartreuse
Instructions
Muddle all but the alcohol in an old fashioned glass. Add crushed ice, add alcohol, top up with more crushed ice and garnish with a second sage leaf.
Notes
Variation of Bon Appetit's chartreuse smash. I see no need for the gin, just double the chartreuse! I cut their honey down a bit (In fact, as I was in the middle of a move, I just used the maple syrup I had on hand and it was fine. Simple syrup would probably be enough).

This seems like a tiny tiny drink. it's basically 2 1/2 ounces?

Thanks,

Zachary

Is that so small? That's basically the size of a Caipirinha (2 oz booze + lime wedges + ~2 tbsp sugar).

Rafa,

It just seems like a small amount of drink compared to the ice.

Thanks,

Zachary
