Few modern cocktails are as iconic—and delicious—as the Chartreuse Swizzle. Here’s how to make the San Francisco classic.

San Francisco has long struck a balance between Old World sophistication and modern creativity, and this drink from Marcovaldo Dionysos is a perfect blend of both.


  • 1 1/2 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. falernum
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:mint sprig, fresh-grated nutmeg


Add all ingredients to a Collins glass and fill with crushed ice. Insert a barspoon into the drink and swizzle the mixture until frost appears on the outside of the glass. Top with more crushed ice and garnish.
