- 2 oz. Rye (95-100 proof)
- ¾ oz. Yellow Chartreuse
- ½ oz. Amaro Segesta or Averna Amaro
- Add all ingredients, with ice, to a mixing glass. Stir to chill and strain into a Rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with a lemon twist.
This delightful cocktail – rich and sophisticated – comes from the mind of one of our favorite Nashville mixologists: Lesley Omary. Sweetened with yellow chartreuse (green chartreuse’s lesser-proof and less herbaceous cousin), the rich and spicy rye notes marry wonderfully with the mildly bitter amaro to make a cocktail that’s sure to become one of your favorites. We find a rye nearer 100-proof really makes this cocktail shine. Enjoy!
