Charterhouse CupCharterhouse Cup
Adapted from a recipe by Adrian Gomes, The Corpse and Cocktail, Aberdeen, Scotland.
“This creation was a regional finalist for a UK competition held in Edinburgh by cult French liqueur, Chartreuse. Although the drink didn’t reach the UK final, it received an honourable mention by ‘UK Bartender of the Year (2011)’ Jamie MacDonald of The Raconteur, Stockbridge, citing the drink as his favourite on the day.” Adrian Gomes.

25 ml (.83 oz) green Chartreuse

15 ml (.5 oz) Pimm’s No. 1 Cup

10 ml (.33 oz) Trois Rivieres rhum (or any unaged or young rhum agricole)

20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

1 dash egg white

1 cucumber ribbon, folded repeatedly and threaded onto a cocktail stick and topped with a mint leaf, as garnish

Dry-shake, then add ice and shake again. Fine-strain into a chilled small wine goblet. Add the garnish.

gaz sez:   This is an interesting quaff.  It’s weird to witness the Chartreuse teasing the Pimm’s Cup on the palate until, just a couple of seconds later, the rhum jumps into the fray and the waters are stilled.  Nicely played, Adrian.
