Chocolate Cocktail

I was told that recently, someone came into the restaurant bar and ordered a very unusual flavor combination.  He wanted equal parts Maraschino Liqueur, Chartreuse and an egg, shaken and served over ice.  The drink had a name, Chocolate Cocktail.  To everyone's surprise, the drink was delicious, and did indeed taste like chocolate.

I found a recipe for a Chocolate Cocktail (No. 1) in the Savoy Cocktail Book.

Chocolate Cocktail (No. 1)
1Tsp Powdered Chocolate
1 Egg
1 Liqueur Glass Maraschino
1 Liqueur Glass Yellow Chartreuse

Shake well and strain into large glass.

Chocolate Cocktail (as ordered by patron)
1 1/2 oz Maraschino
1 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1 Egg

Shake well and strain over ice.

Notes:  As the name suggests, this is a desert drink resembling an adult chocolate milkshake.  I used Green chartreuse which was delicious,  but to mellow out the anise notes, I would suggest Yellow Chartreuse.  Because of its viscosity, I served it over ice.
