Holidays are the perfect excuse to come up with themed and colorful cocktails.  Being mostly of Irish descent myself, St. Patty’s Day is a personal favorite holiday of mine. While most people for for the green died drinks, I’m looking forward to this cocktail from Food & Wine.  It is a Chartreuse Gin Daisy and is absolutely delicious.  See below for my version:

Ingredients:

2 ¼ ounce Aviation American Gin

¼ ounce Yellow Chartreuse

¾ ounce Freshly pressed lemon juice

¼ ounce Agave nectar

Dash of Orange bitters

1 brandied cherry as garnish

Preparation:

In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, yellow Chartreuse, lemon juice, agave nectar and orange bitters. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the cherry.
