On Halloween, we spent the evening at a fundraising event at No. 9 Park for Barbara Lynch's Meet the Worms organization. One of the drinks on the bar menu was a variation on the Blackthorn, a drink I had as I made my way through Anvil's 100 Drink List back in 2009. When I inquired about the origins of Green Chartreuse in their version, I got a simple answer that it tastes better that way; in the end, I had no argument to their rationale.
