Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces (45 ml) Angel’s Envy Bourbon
  • ¾ ounce (20 ml) fresh, strained lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce (20 ml) ginger liqueur (storebought or homemade, below)
  • ¾ ounce (20 ml) yellow Chartreuse
  • ice
  • cinnamon stick

Instructions

  • Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, ginger liqueur, and chartreuse in a cocktail shaker.

  • Light the cinnamon stick on fire briefly and extinguish in the cocktail to garnish.

Notes

Feel free to use a store bought ginger liqueur, or give yourself a few days to make my version, below - it's shockingly easy and fiery good.

You can order smallish bottles of yellow chartreuse and Angel's Envy bourbon from K&L Wines in San Francisco. Angel's Envy is a particularly light, bright tasting bourbon that works well in this drink, but feel free to trade in the bourbon of your choice if you don't have any on hand.
