About The Cocktail

Originating from the Detroit Athletic Clubs of the 1920s, it disappeared from the drinking scene several decades later but not before it was mentioned in Ted Saucier’s book Bottoms Up where Murray Stenson found it and brought to bring it back to life at Seattles Zig Zag Cafe. The cocktails green tint comes from the Chartreuse, a liqueur originally intended for medicine use made from 130 different herbs and flowers made exclusively by Carthusian Monks according to a 400 year old manuscript. For the most part, these monks maintain no contact with the outside world.
