Originally made by the Carthusian monks in France’s La Grande Chartreuse monastery, this aromatic liqueur comes in green and yellow varieties. The yellow, colored with saffron, is lighter and sweeter in flavor. Green Chartreuse — colored with chlorophyll — is drier, has a sharper, more aromatic flavor and is higher in alcohol (110 proof).
