From other users
  • Herbal and slightly bitter. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • As per another member's suggestion, I cut back the lemon juice (All the way to 1/2oz) It made an excellent drink, but might try edging it up to 3/4 oz next time. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Less lemon and light on the Chartreuse. May be nice shaken with egg white — ☆☆☆☆
  • Increase all volumes to 1 oz, next do all 3/4 but benedictine & lemon juice 1/2 — ☆☆☆☆
  • To sweet for me, but love the flavors — ☆☆☆

I really love this herbal,

I really love this herbal, floral creation, thank you! I tried it with Yellow Chartreuse before I had Benedictine, which was also great. This is on my short list of absolute favorites.

Tastes like summer. I agree

Tastes like summer. I agree with comments of less lemon and easy on the Chartreuse. Will try shaken with egg white next time.
