Sage and Chartreuse Smash

Sage and chartreuse and not much else!
1 lf Sage (fresh leaf)
12 sli Lime (cut into wedges)
1 T Honey
2 oz Chartreuse
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.
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).

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

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