The Daisy de Santiago cocktail is a pre-Prohibition era drink that is essentially a twist on a Daiquirí with the addition of Yellow Chartreuse to give the cocktail subtle herbal notes.

Chartreuse is an herbal liqueur made by the Carthusian monks in France from a secret recipe that dates back to 1737. If you’re not familiar with Chartreuse then this classic Cuban cocktail is a perfect way to introduce your palate to this delightful liqueur.

The recipe first appeared in Charles H. Baker’s Jigger, Beaker and Glass: Drinking Around the World.
