Alc/vol: 45% to 71%
Is an herb flavored liqueur that is very aromatic. Aromatic plants and herbs are steeped in alcohol. It is produced at the Grande Chartreuse Monastery near Grenoble, France by the Carthusian Monks. Chartreuse comes in 3 colors; yellow, green, and pale green. The green is sweet and strong in alcohol (55% alc/vol). The yellow is sweeter and less powerful (45% alc/vol) than the green. Pale green Chartreuse is labelled 'Elixir VÃ©gÃ©tal de la Grande Chartreuse' (71% alc/vol). The 'Elixir' should be consumed sparingly (read - tiny sips so you don't choke, gag, and cough technique). Best enjoyed as an after dinner drink straight up cold or on the rocks. Blends well with fruit juices and club soda.
