Light And Day
A gin distilled in Plymouth, England. It is less dry than the more common London Dry gin, mainly due to more root ingredients that soften the juniper flavor.
A French liqueur made by the Carthusian Monks since 1737 according to the instructions given to them by François Annibal d'Estrées in 1605. It is a distilled alcohol aged with 130 herbs, plants and flowers. The name derived from the monks' Grande Chartreuse monastery in the Chartreuse Mountains. Chartreuse is known to age and improve in the bottle. Yellow Chartreuse is sweeter in flavor and aroma than its green brother; 40% ABV.
A liqueur distilled from Marasca cherries, that grow along the Dalmatian coast.
A citrus juice used in many cocktails, both for its sweet and tart taste and its color. Orange juice, unlike lemon and lime, can be kept fresh for days. In a blind taste test, most people liked day-old orange juice.
A gentian-base aromatic bitters similar to Angostura but with a lighter body, sweeter taste and more floral aroma. A common component of the Sazerac.
Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a cope. #stir #straight
The first drink I created for D&C breaks a few rules (using fresh orange juice in a stirred cocktail), but it turned out delicious enough to not get me fired.
