Ginuary 14th: Broadway & Elsewhere.

Another find from Bottoms Up! The brief notes against this drink say it’s in honour of Jack Lait, columnist for the New York Mirror.

Broadway & Elsewhere

  • 45ml gin
  • 22.5ml green chartreuse
  • 15ml lemon juice

 

Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

I picked this one out for two reasons: because I am quite fond of green chartreuse, and because just last week I was staying around the corner from Broadway and I’m desperately holding onto that. Ok, three reasons—I also had the ingredients handy.

I wondered if it might not be a bit too tart but as a huge fan of the Last Word (definitely still the more exceptional of the two) I had a feeling things would probably go alright between me and Broadway & Elsewhere. And they did indeed.
