Old Flame

Old Flame

The Old Flame comes to us from The PDT Cocktail Book, and it’s a great drink to whip out when you want to impress your guests with a bit of showmanship. We’re not really sure of the function of setting Green Chartreuse alight, but it does seem to introduce a light caramelization of the liqueur’s sugars, and the brief touch of warmth on an ice-cold drink is novel and delightful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients (except the green Chartreuse): first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Pour the green Chartreuse into a metal jigger, set it aflame with a match, wait a moment to allow it to heat up, and then pour the flaming liqueur over the top of the drink.
