Xanthia Cocktail

Our home bar had been lacking in Yellow Chartreuse. So now that we have it, I felt I had to showcase it in a drink. I immediately headed to my affectionately worn copy of Savoy Cocktail Book.

Xanthia (according to my friend Google) is Greek for Blonde. The recipe calls for, in addition to Yellow Chartreuse, Cherry Brandy, and dry gin. There are several choices out there for Cherry Brandy.  Since the name itself implies a color, I went with a clear brandy called Kirsch.

If you enjoy dry cocktails, this cocktail may be for you. Xanthia is a dry herbaceous cocktail with just enough sweetness. For a drier cocktail, try reducing the Yellow Chartreuse to 1/2 part.
