Aside from the fact that the Green Ghost is a delicious cocktail, with a lovely appearance and a killer name, not much is known about it. It first appears in print in 1937, in the Cafe Royal Cocktail Book, where it's attributed to a J. B. Hurrell.

Never mind that. This tasty drink highlights the Chartreuse and will impress anyone who likes a pretty drink because unlike many pretty drinks, this one has flavor to match its beauty.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce Green Chartreuse
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice, from 1 lime

Directions

  1. 1.

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin, Chartreuse, and lime juice. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass and serve.
