Green Hornet, whiskey cocktail

This mixture has all the signs of one of those Prohibition era cocktails in which raw characteristics of bad booze were made palatable with liqueur modifiers. Fear not: Good rye brings some sting, creme de menthe provides the herbal tingle, and the Chartreuse adds a dose of pepperiness.

Green Hornet Green Hornet vert
3/4 ounce rye
3/4 ounce green de menthe
3/4 ounce green Chartreuse

Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir for 15-20 seconds. Let stand in the glass for 10 seconds; strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Tasting notes: Heat in the throat from the rye, cooled by mint, sparked by Chartreuse.
