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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
