Chartreuse Swizzle

Chartreuse Swizzle

"The Chartreuse Swizzle is a contest-winning cocktail created when bartender Marcovaldo Dionysos was employed at the Starlight Room. But the drink traveled with him to Clock Bar and (thanks to the Internet) other cities around the world. The base of complex Chartreuse with fresh juices and the spicy clove notes of Velvet Falernum produce a drink that's tropical and holiday-friendly at the same time.

1¼ ounces green Chartreuse
½ ounce Velvet Falernum
¾ ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce pineapple juice
Crushed ice
Grated nutmeg and mint sprig, for garnish

In a tall glass, combine the Chartreuse, Velvet Falernum, lime juice and pineapple juice. Add crushed ice and stir until the glass is frosty. Garnish with grated nutmeg and the mint sprig and serve."
