The Greenpoint

Michael McIlroy, created for Milk & Honey | New York City

This Chartreuse-infused drink, named for Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, is a relative of the 1909 classic, the Brooklyn. It may indeed have a slightly greenish tint in the glass. But to be clear, it’s made with Yellow Chartreuse, not the more anise-forward green Chartreuse.
