Chartreuse

I've been reading up on my new favourite drink - chartreuse verte, the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green colour, made from 130 plants and flowers, and with a 55% alcohol content (110 proof US). I'd love to score a bottle of Elixir Vegetal de la Grande Chartreuse, which strikes me as similar to absinthe, la Fée Verte. Read about the history of the Chartreuse Monks and their Elixir of Life.
