Almost Famous with Yellow Chartreuse

I picked up a bottle of Yellow Chartreuse in London for just £44. It has a lower ABV than Green Chartreuse and is sweeter and less herbal, but it is still unmistakably a Chartreuse.

The cocktail is Almost Famous by Laura Bishop of Navy Strength in Seattle, published in Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails by Shannon Mustipher (2019). It is a riff on the Naked & Famous, replacing the Mezcal with an Overproof Jamaica Rum. This easy to make and flavorful cocktail leans boozy but I really enjoyed the complex flavors of the two liqueurs and of course the backbone from the Jamaica Rum.
