Greenpoint

Greenpoint

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
