The Chicha Morada Cocktail

Chicha Morada Cocktail

.25 oz. Green Chartreuse
.75 oz. Chicha Morada Syrup*
.75 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
.5 oz. Egg White
Dry Shake

* Chicha Morada syrup--based on the traditional Chicha Morada beverage that is popular in Peru--is made with Peruvian purple corn, sugar and water, a touch of cinnamon, cloves, fresh apples and pineapple.  The ingredients are brought to a boil on the stove, heat is reduced to a simmer, and then the syrup is removed from the stove and left to cool while the flavors further infuse.  The syrup is then strained into a bottle and refrigerated.
