H. Joseph Ehrmann of Elixir in San Francisco created this cocktail for the 2006 Chartreuse Cocktail Competition, marrying the sweet, herbal notes of Green Chartreuse with coffee liqueur and a little cream.
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 1/2 ounces Galliano Ristretto or other coffee liqueur
- 1 1/2 ounces Green Chartreuse
- Garnish: Pinch brown sugar (optional)
Whip cream in a bowl with a whisk until it reaches a thick consistency, but is still fluid enough to pour, about 45 seconds.
Add coffee liqueur and Chartreuse to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir until well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into a small wine glass or snifter.
Top drink with whipped cream by floating it over the back of a bar spoon. Garnish with a pinch of brown sugar on top if desired.
