The Alaska is a close relative of the Martini, with many similarities in flavor. The drink originated around the early 1900s, though it’s unclear who named it or why. It mixes botanical gin with herbaceous yellow Chartreuse, and citrus orange bitters. Resulting in a bold, aromatic, and zesty libation.
The simplicity of the Alaska, much like a Martini, does not allow for inferior ingredients to slip by unnoticed. Choose the gin wisely and consider one more juniper forward that will complement the botanicals in yellow Chartreuse.
