THE FELONIOUS MONK

Tobais Jelinek /The Flintridge Proper

FlintridgeProper-482

Tobias pays tribute to spring in Flintridge with a symphony of greens – both Green Chartreuse and The Green Fairy, Absinthe –  in this easy drinking vodka cocktail certain to please nearly every taste.

Starting with citrus vodka, he adds Green Chartreuse the beguiling bright green liquour that has been made by Carthusian Monks from a secret recipe of more than 130 different herbs, plants and flowers since the early 1600s.  He then balances it with fresh lemon, local honey and a spray of the Green Fairy, Absinthe, for additional complexity on the nose.

  • 1 oz Green Chartruese
  • 1 oz Kettle One Citreon
  • 1/2 oz Ginger Syrup
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
