Best Answer

Chartreuse has a very strong characteristic flavor. It is very sweet, by turns both spicy and pungent. By way of comparison, it is quite similar to Liquore Strega or Galliano. Its taste varies depending upon the serving temperature. It is often served on ice, but can be added to cocktails or added to a mixer. Some mixed drink recipes call for only a few drops of Chartreuse, so assertive is its flavor. Though the flavor is highly complex, many[who?] find it most distinctly reminiscent of anise, which is easily discernible as one of the ingredients.
