The Greenpoint is a member of the “Neighborhood” family of cocktails, as we call it: a set of pre-Prohibition cocktails named for New York neighborhoods and boroughs, like the Brooklyn and the Bronx.
The star of the Greenpoint is yellow (not green, despite the name) Chartreuse, the best-known and sweetest of the yellow herbal liqueurs.
Overall, the Greenpoint is sweeter than its neighbors, with a lot of spice and wood notes from the bitters and the rye, with a nice vegetal-sweet finish.
Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
