NyQuil Lightning

'Tis the season, so the theme for this week's TDN  (happening right now) was (is) Hot Drinks:
As the blood-cracked, icy fingers of winter descend upon the Land of Mixology, we turn to one final respite. One last hope to cope with the cold. Warm cocktails. Toddies, slings, butters, wrinkles, and hoozles. Bring your thermos and join the festivities!
After being somewhat at a loss for ideas for origional hot drinks and considering sitting this week out, inspiration struck.  I had read a Paul Clarke post indicating Green Chartreuse paired well with Hot Chocolate, so I decided to simulate the hot chocolate by generously spiking hot milk with Xocolatl Mole Bitters, which led me to this drink I find pleasing and complex:
NyQuil Lightning
  • 1 oz Green Chartreuse
  • ¾ oz Rye (Overholt)
  • 4 oz hot milk
  • 6 dashes Xocolatl Mole Bitters
stir and sweet dreams
