Review:

As Jason Clapham, the discerning drinker who brought this cocktail to my attention, says, "it's a Champs-Élysées crossed with Sidecar. What could go wrong?"

If you'd like to cut the above 90ml (3oz) of booze down to Nick & Nora size, then use:
40ml (1⅓oz) Cognac
10 (⅓oz) Orange curaçao
10 (⅓oz) Green Chartreuse
10 (⅓oz) Lemon juice

History:

A classic, which originally appeared in David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, kindly brought to my attention and rejuvenated by Jason E. Clapham of St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England.
