Full House Cocktail

An Old Waldorf Bar Days Recipe


1 ounce (30 ml) Yellow Chartreuse
1 ounce (30 ml) Benedictine
1 ounce (30 ml) Laird's 7 1/2 year Apple Brandy
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir ingredients well with ice and strain into glass filled with crushed ice.

A full house indeed! This may have been named in honor of a winning hand, and as rich as it tastes, I would imagine it a welcome libation to order after a big win with hand of same name. With so many bold flavors fighting for space on your palate though the name is a bit of a double entendre, and it could have been an inside joke with the bartenders.

I like it...a lot actually. It's intense, and not a combination that you encounter often. It doesn't hurt that it's made with ingredients I love to use either. A good one when you are in the mood for something on the wild side.
