You know who would really

You know who would really like this? Dan. He loves Creme Yvette... the more the better.

Actually, I've never tried

Actually, I've never tried Creme Yvette because I have a 267-year supply of Creme de Violette to use up first. ;)

I really like the way the Calvados, Chartreuse, and Creme Yvette combine, but I'm not sure that I care for the gin flavor in the mix- I'll try with less next time, as this was a little boozy-tasting. I used Tanqueray which maybe wasn't the best choice...

Finally tried again, 1.5

Finally tried again, 1.5 Calvados and no gin which I think it is an improvement. Fruity but not cloying. Worth toying with, and if you don't have Creme Yvette (I have a huge bottle to use up) most any floral liqueur would work...
