Albert Mathieu

This cocktail recipe immediately caught my eye when I saw that it is made with some of my absolute favorite liqueurs. I pretty much love anything with gin, Green Chartreuse, St-Germain or bitters. If you want this drink a bit less potent, simply pour it over 1 large ice cube in a rocks glass instead.

1 ½ ounces Gin (Plymouth to be accurate, but I just used Beefeater)

“In 1802, Albert Mathieu, a French mining engineer, proposed a tunnel under the English Channel that eventually led to the Chunnel that now connects England and France.”

*You should check out this book. 1st of all for the great recipes and lore about the PDT Bar (You enter this hidden gem by dialing a number and entering through a vintage phone booth that is located in a hotdog restaurant in New York City) and second of all for the illustrations by award-winning illustrator, Chris Gall. It is not to be missed.
