Chartreuse is both an amazing color and liqueur. We love both at the Public House! This gem of a bottle sits on our back shelf. Made by monks who are silent the recipe is top secret like most herbal liqueurs, we use it in the Last Word and it is delicious over ice.
On Wednesday August 24 from 6 – 8 at the Public House we will be tasting both green and yellow Chartreuse. In addition to the samples we will have a cocktail featuring each. According to Wikipedia, Green Chartreuse (110 proof or 55%) is a naturally green liqueur flavored with extracts from 132 plants with its coloring coming from chlorophyll while, Yellow Chartreuse (40%), has a milder and sweeter flavor and aroma.
Cocktails will be available in tasting size and full size. This is one of those liqueurs that you should try. It’s way out of the box as far as flavor profile goes with 130 herbs. It’s a liqueur that can sit in the back of a cocktail and add a mysterious depth of flavor or it can dominate a drink with it’s powerful punch.
