The Shoggoth or Miskatonic University Antarctic Expedition Martini

2 1/4 oz London No.1 Gin
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
2 dashes Hella Bitters Orange
rinse Butterfly Absinthe

Stir first 3 ingredients with ice and strain into a very chilled, Absinthe washed Cocktail Glass. Garnish with a glob of Shuggoth and run screaming into the snowy wilderness. 

Based on the Alaska Cocktail (aka Emerald Martini) I wanted to name it after something from one of the coldest stories in the Lovecraft Mythos. This is more of a true Martini than the R’lyeh Rum Cocktail as this is actually made with Gin so I want to keep it named AS a Martini. 

* I do apologize for the shitty 2 1/4 oz measurement. I actually made this with 3 oz. Gin to 1 oz. Chartreuse and 3 dashes of bitters but I have an old rule from Mixology school pinned into my brain that served mixed drinks can only contain up to 3 oz. liquor in most states. I don’t even know how true that is anymore but to keep the disputable ratio of the original Alaska Cocktail of 3:1, I cut it back a bit to appease… something.
