McCarthy's take on a Manhattan makes use of green Chartreuse; "The Jacobeans always sided with the French, so my chartreuse drink is named for them." AnCnoc is stirred with Carpano Antica ("the more savory of the sweet vermouths"), a half-ounce of green chartreuse, and a good measure of ice. "I want about half an ounce of ice melt to really open up these heavy hitters, Scotch and chartreuse. Let it cook in the glass for awhile."
