    I agree on Alan Katz's comment to enjoy herbal liquors such as Chartreuse with an ice cube. It is the same for the Verveine du Velay but try also leaving the bottle in the deep freeze compartment and only draw it out when you are serving. The alcohol is completely tamed, the liqueur becomes onctuous and delicate and the aromas and savours are enhanced.

    And the 150 year old Verveine du Velay, Green, Yellow and Extra which contains 5% of Cognac are also great experiences. They are available through Preiss Imports, all around the US.

    The French also drink Marc, try and find also at Preiss Imports, the Marc from the Hospices de Beaune, vintage 1993

    So how or why does this work? And how effective is it? I don't have a European handy otherwise I'd ask her.
