The Green Eyes cocktail has a vibrant hue and refreshing taste and comprises a delicate blend of gin, green Chartreuse, simple syrup, egg white, and freshly squeezed lime juice.

The flavor profile of the Green Eyes cocktail is a complex of herbal, citrusy, and slightly sweet notes. The botanical complexity of green Chartreuse, a liqueur made from a blend of 130 herbs and plants, adds a layer of depth to the cocktail. The gin’s juniper undertones provide a balanced contrast to the herbaceousness, while the lime juice contributes a zesty, tangy element that balances the overall taste. The result is a well-rounded and invigorating drink that delights the palate with each sip.

The mastermind behind the Green Eyes cocktail, Andrew Volk, hails from Maine’s Portland Hunt & Alpine. As a visionary mixologist, Volk skillfully intertwined all the ingredients to craft this iconic drink. His creative genius and deep understanding of flavor profiles birthed a cocktail that tantalizes the senses. Named after a lover’s gaze, the Green Eyes cocktail stands as a testament to Volk’s dedication to mixology artistry, leaving an indelible mark on the world of beverages.
