Classic Pours: Songbird

The Tantris Sidecar reminded me that I haven't poured one of the classics in a while; the tested and true standbys of our grandfathers' days. It would be remiss of me, though, to go without acknowledging some of the classic pours already at the Lounge, so that you can have a head start in enjoying some of these favorites right away as we add more - they include the Aviation, the Filmograph, the Grasshopper, the Honeymoon, the Imperial Fizz, the Monkey Gland, and the Curled Satan's Whiskers.

And now try this expensive and delicious oldie but goodie...


1 1/2 ounces of gin
1 ounce of St. Germain
1/2 ounce of Green Chartreuse
1/2 ounce of lemon juice

Shake with ice, strain and serve. Cherry garnish if you like. Drink with full swallows and savor the sophistication. A perfect drink for summer, a lemonade in a three piece suit.
