  • Used muddled jalapeño, instead of infused — ★★★
  • Original was too sweet and too much chartruese. Friends fixed with small dial back on both. — ★★★★

Curated this somewhat: The noters were duplicated - one set was removed. Added a note to the Chartreuse to reference the infusion. Updated attribution, and a link to the recipe. 

Thanks. By the way, works nicely even with un-infused Chartreuse.
