Two weeks ago it was time for the Chartreuse Cocktail Challenge finals at Reisen Bar here in Stockholm. Of all submitted recipes, twelve were chosen - and their creators, some of the best bartenders in Sweden, were supposed to present them in front of a jury. I was kind of disappointed that my recipes didn't make it to the finals, but also relieved that I didn't have to do the presentation. Oh well...

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend this event myself, but Emil kindly shared his winning recipe with us so we can try it out for ourselves, and it sounds like a perfect drink for cold autumn and winter evenings - enjoy!
