Our comment:

Herbal with hints of apple, mint and eucalyptus. This classic is also often made with green Chartreuse but we prefer as per classic recipes with half Yellow Chartreuse and half Bénédictine.

History:

Created by George J. Kappeler at New York City's Holland House Hotel. This recipe is adapted from his 1895 book Modern American Drinks.
