Chartreuse fans will love this serious drink. The uninitiated will hate it.
Adapted from a recipe which first appeared in Hugo R. Ensslin’s 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinkswhere he stipulates equal parts. It also appears in Harry McElhone’s 1922 ABC of Mixing Cocktails, although McElhone’s recipe calls for ½ ounce Green Chartreuse, 2 ounces Irish whiskey and 1 ounce sweet vermouth> by time Harry Craddock publishes his 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book the recipe returns to its original equal parts formulation and is joined by a second unrelated recipe also called Tipperary (see Tipperary No.2).
