Recipe Notes

The Chartreuse used here is very different from the typical green or yellow chartreuse we're used it. It's not as sweet (it's an Aperitif, not a liqueur), very herbaceous and bitter. It is definitely worthy to have on your bar because there's very few flavours quite like it. If for some reason you don't have it, China China would be the closest substitute but that's even a bit of a stretch. Cheers
