The bartender (pushing Agua Libre, St. George Spirits) made a drink on the spot that had chartreuse (funky) and somthin else that was "funky". The drink was very good!
Chartreuse... Green Chartreuse? This would be, to me, one of the most widely-imitated liqueurs I've run into in my travels. I've sampled and purchased this "minty" flavored and colored drink at several abbeys/closters/monasteries/distilleries in Europe. Each time I am surprised, "Hey, this tastes like Green Chartreuse..." There was something about this particular flavor combination that made people go nuts hundreds of years ago. So much so that this type of product is still made in many places to this day. While not quite as strong in flavor as Pernod, it still is a liqueur which heads in that direction of flavor potency...
