  • 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 — ☆☆☆☆
  • Good drink. Could use either one of the ingredients infused with jalapeno or maybe the egg white would be enhanced. Also could try up. Nice riff on the Last Word. 2nd time tried w/ jal. and egg white. 5* — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • 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.
