Riffing off the Bijou cocktail, specifically my favorite variation using barrel-aged gin, I now have the Smoky Topaz!
updated, 12/12/16: I’ve made a small adjustment to the original, upping the gin and going for a balance between the yellow and green Chartreuse
The Smoky Topaz
- 1.5 oz barrel-aged gin (Tom Cat preferred)
- .75 oz yellow Chartreuse
- .25 oz green Chartreuse
- .75 oz Averna Amaro
No orange bitters in this one; maybe the next one. Or cranberry bitters. But definitely an orange peel for garnish.
