Chartreuse competition cocktail recipes

So, I was invited to participate in a Swedish Chartreuse cocktail competition, and the criteria for submitting a recipe was that you had to use at least 20 ml Green Chartreuse in the drink. The recipe should then be posted on a website together with instructions and a photo or a film. My aim was to make at least one film, but because of several reasons that didn’t happen. Anyway, the deadline has passed, so I guess I can make my creations available to the public – hope you like them!

The ten best recipes will be revealed within two weeks from now, and the people behind them will compete against each other in front of a jury on October 22…
