This cocktail is like a combination of a Last Word, a French 75, and a classic Champagne Cocktail (some classic versions include Cognac). It is closely inspired by a sparkling cocktail from Death & Co. in N.Y.C. that uses Champagne to add fizz to a Last Word. Yellow Chartreuse can be harder to find than Green Chartreuse, and you can use Green Chartreuse instead if you have that—the cocktail will just be a bit stronger and more intensely flavored. —fiveandspice
I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.
