Wonderful drink! Was first introduced to it in south of France aged 16 on PGL canoeing holiday in 1971!! Can't get enough of it now! Nothing can touch it.100/100!

The Last Word: Prohibition Era Cocktail: Equal Measures Green Chartreuse, Good Gin (I reccommend Tanqueray Export Strength, Fresh Lime Juice (from a piece of fruit - not out of a bottle!!!!) and Maraschino Liqueur) shake over ice until your hands freeze to the shaker and then shake some more (very important) and pour into a chilled martini glass. Very tasty.

Looking forward to rediscovering the excellent digestive effects & very complex herbal flavours. Not all grannies are knocked out by it, let alone great grannies!

Once in Argentina, I had a couple of cocktails made with this stuff. The recipe was basically Chartreuse mixed with a 'dash' of pineapple juice, shaken and served in a Martini glass. EXCELLENT STUFF!!!

Try bruleeing this a touch with a chef's blow torch - it really brings out the drink's character which can be overwhelmed by the alcohol

I have loved this drink for years and it goes well poured over vanilla icecream. An amazing drink.

A riproaringly brilliant drink. A family favourite for decades (apart from my mother-in-law, who took weeks to recover from merely taking a sip ;o)

A fantastic drink, powerful with very interesting flavours. As far as i know it used to be a digestif, but i find it's a mighty drink for a night out!
