Greenpoint

Greenpoint cocktail with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, yellow Chartreuse, Angostura bitters, and orange bitters

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
