Originally a mix of gin or bourbon, lime and seltzer, this riff on the classic Rickey cocktail takes the drink in a tropical direction with rum and Chartreuse.
2 oz. white rum
½ oz. green Chartreuse
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. agave syrup
3 mint sprigs
Tools: muddler, shaker, strainer
Glass: Collins or highball
Garnish: lime wheel, mint bouquet
Muddle the mint and a large lime wedge in a shaker. Add the rum, green Chartreuse, lime juice and agave. Shake with ice, strain into an ice-filled highball glass, then garnish.
