Emerald Old Fashioned
A classic cocktail with a St. Patrick’s Day twist! The festive green color comes from Génépy des Alpes, an herbal liqueur from the mountainous regions of Europe; and Green Chartreuse, a French liqueur made by the Carthusian Monks since 1737, composed of distilled alcohol aged with 130 herbs, plants and flowers. Sláinte!
