“This cocktail was inspired by cold winter mornings in my New Mexican hometown. The poblano chile is reminiscent of the crisp, cold air that carries the smell of green chiles being roasted, and the juniper and herbs that litter the high desert are represented in this cocktail through gin and chartreuse.” —Brian Felley

2 dash lime bitters
