Playing How To Make A Lost In The Woods Cocktail By John Cusimano

Fresh fennel, gin and the herbal notes of chartreuse are shaken together for an aromatic cocktail that packs a heady punch.

From Rachael Ray Every Day, April 2019.


  • 1 ¼ cups chopped fennel bulb and ½ cup fronds, plus more fronds for garnish (from about 1 medium bulb)
  • 3 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce Green Chartreuse liqueur
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • Seltzer, to top the drink (2 to 4 ounces)


Serves: 2


In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle the chopped fennel and ½ cup fennel fronds until well mashed, about 1 minute. Add the gin, lime juice, Green Chartreuse, and simple syrup. Fill the shaker with ice. Shake well (about 20 good shakes) and strain into 2 rocks glasses filled with ice. Top with seltzer. Garnish with fennel fronds.

Always drink responsibly.
