Champ Elysees

Champs-Élysées

The Champs-Élysées is named after the avenue (of the same name) where the Arc de Triomphe is located. The avenue is famous for its theatres, cafés, and luxury shops.
Most refer to the cocktail being first mentioned in Harry Craddock's The Savoy Cocktail Book but 5 years prior it was featured in a lesser-known cocktail book, Drinks - Long and Short (👈 free cocktail book).
It can be viewed as a variation on the classic Sidecar - introducing Green Chartreuse in place of the Curacao. Herbaceous and citrusy. Don't let the simplicity list of the ingredients fool you, this is an excellent drink.
The original recipe called for Angostura bitters and was scaled up and designed to serve 6 people. It only listed "Chartreuse" as one of the ingredients but modern bartenders have deduced that Green Chartreuse is the most fitting for this drink. The specs below are from Sasha Petraske's Regarding Cocktails.
