How to make a "Christmas in Hollis"

Looking for something to take the edge off the in-laws' impending visit? This concoction from T. Cole Newton of Twelve Mile Limit, the big winner of last year's Tales of the Toddy competition, should do the trick.

Christmas in Hollis

1 oz. Benedictine
½ oz. Green Chartreuse
½ oz. Buffalo Trace bourbon
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 dash Bitter Truth Mole Bitters
2 oz. Orange Crush (or similar orange soda)

Combine in Tom Collins glass. Add ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
