In a cooking vessel add the Chartreuse and a spring of rosemary. Using a blow torch cook the ingredients until you get an infusion. Strain into a Russian Imperial Mug with Crushed ice. Add all the other ingredients helping yourself with a swizzle stick. Add more crushed ice.
 
Garnish: with a Flamed Rosemary Sprig and Caramelized Kumquats. "Na Zdorovie"
 
Inspiration: I made this drink during his visit as Guest Bartending at City Space Bar in Moscow on Thanksgiving Day. 
I was inspired by the way people cook their turkeys to celebrate. 
When I gave it to try to my first guest in Moscow, after explaining this story he said, so...."Where is the Turkey?"
