Another beauty from Harry Craddock. Found in the pages of the Savoy Cocktail Book, this looks to be a third cousin to the Sidecar cocktail. But, this is not for the faint of heart. A seriously boozy tipple, the small serving size of this is well-chosen. If you double the recipe you’re asking for trouble.
It’s possible I suppose that Mr. Craddock created this in tribute to the other famous bartending Harry of the day, Harry MacElhone who was head bartender at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, France. But, in all likelihood it is probably named for the fact that the two main ingredients hail from France. In any case, this is a tasty little number that will certainly bring to mind the silver age of cocktails.
0.5oz yellow Chartreuse
