Jewel Cocktail Recipe

The Jewel Cocktail combines and unlikely trio of ingredients to make an incredibly delicious tasting beverage. Green Chartreuse, Dry Gin, and Italian Vermouth bring into play a medium-dry, fast working cocktail.

Ok, I have to admit, I’d never consider these ingredients together. Several polled cocktail aficionado friends seemed skeptical. However, a common consensus is this is a spectacularly vibrant cocktail.

The green chartreuse comes through on the nose, and the Italian vermouth makes it a little on the sweet side. As for the gin? I can’t even detect it, and it brings the drink to a state of serendipitous balance.

The original recipe came from Harry Craddock’s, The Savoy Cocktail Book, where it was proportioned for 6 and described as “a medium-dry, fast-working cocktail.” After drinking 1 1/2 of these, I concur to the description. I brought the ratio down to a single cocktail and made a minor adjustment on bitters from the original recipe.
