Have experienced this liqueur several time while skiing in the French Alps. Hot chocolate drink with Chartreuse (in it or separately with it) seems to be a popular local speciality. I have not seen it served this way anywhere else, but would recommend it. It certainly adds that 'je ne sais quoi' to the chocolate making a unique hot drink

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!
