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.Adapted with permission from Ian Kearney of The Daisy in NYC.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.Nutritional values are based on one drink.
