Martinis are consumed widely, from college girls to business executives. However, sometimes it might be time for a little variation. The chartreuse martini is a bold and brilliant green concoction that demands attention, as well as providing your martini with some herbal hints that it normally wouldn’t have.

Often times, cocktails with color are fruity and diluted down, which of course makes less of a statement. However, the chartreuse simply opens up a new dimension for the martini, while still being an effective cocktail. It is often referred to lovingly as a “chartini”. Everybody loves a martini, but serving chartreuse martinis might be a way to impress your guests or friends by switching it up.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 ounces of gin
  • ½ ounce of green chartreuse
  • ½ ounce of dry vermouth

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients over ice, into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

There is simply no other way to describe this drink other than that it looks absolutely beautiful. It should be noted that chartreuse isn’t exactly a cheap liquor, so that it definitely might be expensive if you are planning on serving a large amount of chartreuse martinis for a particular function. One great way to utilize the ccocktail is to have an upscale function somehow related to the color green – for example, the chartini is the perfect cocktail to serve for an upscale St. Patrick’s Day party. If you happen to have a green theme to a party, or if green is the color of your school or organization; the chartreuse martini is a rare way for you to have a sophisticated cocktail that does the job, without diluting the gin with green apple schnapps, for example.

For those who are dirty martini lovers, consider adding some olive juice if you prefer. As with any martini, the go-to garnish would be an olive. Chartreuse isn’t found in too many cocktails, but adding it to a martini certainly creates something beautiful.

It may not be the kind of drink that people order every happy hour, but it is a special gem that is more aesthetically pleasing than almost any other cocktail that exists.
