My Infamy

My-Infamy-1

This is one of those slow sippers which happened after a night of tinkering in my kitchen, aka My Home Bar. The inspiration for this drink was to combine Chartreuse Jaune and Branca Menta in a delightful and not overpowering way. Both liqueurs have Saffron notes and I wanted to put the Minty Herbaceousness of the Branca with the Floral Herbaceousness of the Chartreuse. Very nice, it’s a very nice combo. I decided Rittenhouse was the right base spirit and then dried it out with Dolin Dry.

My Infamy

  • 2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
  • 1/2 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
  • 1/2 oz Chartreuse Jaune
  • 1/4 oz Branca Menta
  • No garnish

Combine ingredients and stir over ice until proper dilution has been achieved. Strain into coupe. Sip slowly with a good book.

It’s hard for me to do this, but sometimes a drink just doesn’t need a garnish. Like, if your hair is amazing, why wear a hat?

Thanks again to the Baddish Group for the fresh and fabulous bottle of Branca Menta
