I was inspired by David Lebowitz's green chartreuse ice cream. Knowing that dairy and green chartreuse go oddly well together. I explored further from there. The honey syrup added sweetness, Ransom's old tom gin is a heavier, sweeter kind of gin which I wanted. It was late october when I made this cocktail, and so keeping in theme I added the green food coloring. My palate skewers sweet, so this was very much a 'me' drink. I hope
