Champs Elysees

We’ve been looking for excuses to use our recently acquired Chartreuse, and this recipe fit that bill nicely!

“Looks like we didn’t waste the Chartreuse.”

The Verdict: Very Good

From The Tasting Notes –

This drink was strong and fruity but not sweet. The bitters really brings it together. Like a fruity version of a Brandy Manhattan. A good use of our hard to find Chartreuse, it really accents the herbal flavor. Would be good as a pre-dinner cocktail!
