Finally got a bottle of Cocchi Americano and I wish I’d gotten it sooner.

1.5oz London dry gin (Bombay)
.5oz Cocchi Americano
.25oz green Chartreuse
1 dash Regan’s orange bitters
Stir with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Peridot is my birthstone, which I hate. But I really enjoy this cocktail.
