This is a combination of Milk & Honey, one of the best cocktail bars in the world. It is a prelude to the classic gin-based Final Word cocktail of a bartender with the last name Ward.
$ 1.02 Sazerac Rye Whiskey
$ 2.35 Green Chartreuse
$ 1.14 Luxardo Maraschino
$ 1.00 lime (I don't remember how much it cost me)
= Make $ 5.51 at home
£ 7.50 ($ 11.35) at Milk & Honey NYC
4oz, 66proof (33% alcohol)
Of course, they have better ice cream, glassware, and real labor costs. 🙂
Bottom line in the next picture.
