Botanical Elixir Chartreuse and Lillet Blanc Cocktail Recipe

We love the combo of green Chartreuse and gin, but to make the pairing a little brighter, we used Lillet Blanc, an orange-infused aperitif wine, which mellows out the intense herbal quality of the Chartreuse.

A squeeze of fresh lime juice rounds out the cocktail's sweetness, resulting in a perfectly crisp cocktail that's perfect for late-summer sipping.
