The Chartreuse most of us recognise from Granny's drinks cabinet. Not to everyone's taste, but for those brave enough to approach with an open mind, this is a remarkable and delicious liqueur.

Chartreuse Green Liqueur Reviews
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: The resemblance to the Elixir Végétal is immediately obvious, but with the intensity toned down. Mint, caraway and basil stand out.
Palate: As with the nose, it’s a toned-down version of the original recipe, with an enticing mintiness.
Finish: Medium in length with the mint joined by sweet eucalyptus. Comment: Chartreuse Green is very similar to mixing Elixir Végétal with sugared water, but without the same pungency.
Serving suggestion: A versatile liqueur, add one part to nine parts Fentimans Tonic Water for a refreshing summer drink, or add a couple of teaspoons to a mug of hot chocolate for a winter warmer.

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
Not sure about romance, but if it's sleep your after - you really can't beat it!!! An imsomniac's dream :)
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)
Not for Granny! Try your lady out with it - your'e sure of a truly romantic night!! Mine swears by it but then I am a v.lucky man.
