Ginuary 14th: the Lumière.

The Lumiére

  • 45ml gin (I used Never Never Triple Juniper)
  • 30ml St-Germain
  • 22.5ml Green Chartreuse
  • 22.5ml fresh lime juice
  • dash of orange bitters

Stir all ingredients together over ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Some nights you win and some nights you think you know what you’re doing and stop reading halfway through the ingredients, before the instruction, and you don’t really do it right but there’s too much of it on a school night for you to get through a second one without things getting silly.

This is one of the Green Chartreuse drinks on my list! Originally composed by Jen Marshall from Nitehawk Cinema, in celebration of Oscar-nominated 2011 film Hugo.

Maybe I’ll try it the right way tomorrow night…
