Chartreuse Swizzle

Marco Dionysos, Smuggler's Cove | San Francisco, CA

A swizzle for the 21st century, Marco Dionysos’s tall, frosty cocktail rejiggers the traditional Caribbean Rum Swizzle with green Chartreuse, a lime-colored, herbal French liqueur. And though a seemingly odd combination of ingredients, Chartreuse’s aromatics pair seamlessly with the spiced falernum and sweet, tropical pineapple. Tangy lime and pile of crushed ice balance the formula and turn it a springy pastel green.
