How to make an Emerald Old Fashioned

Emerald Old Fashioned

The Emerald Old Fashioned is a fascinating riff on a traditional Old Fashioned. A smooth, sweeter style of Irish whiskey accompanies a touch of herbaceous Green Chartreuse and anise-flavours from Absinthe (the original recipe calls for Genepy, a French liqueur). Surprisingly smooth considering the compilation of liqueurs.
