Alaska Cocktail Recipe

It is a strong and complex martini where dry vermouth is replaced by chartreuse. The couple of dashes of orange bitters compliments the herbal flavors of yellow chartreuse and botanical flavors of gin and gives a new dimension to its palatability. Must try drink for all gin and chartreuse aficionados.
