I got this as a Christmas Gift. I was told to drink it chilled on the rocks in a chilled glass.
How is this advice?
If you like it, it's good advice. If you dislike it, it's bad advice.
If the drink is served on the rocks, you don't need to chill the glass.
I think it's most commonly drank as part of a Snakebite, which adds lime juice. I could be wrong, though, as I don't really care for Yukon.
Here is some better advice: go into the kitchen, open the bottle, pour down the drain.
Darned good thing you didn't drink that stuff. Dreadful, seriously.
Somehow the only thing that comes close somehow in my mind (my taste memory may be completely off here) is Strega, which I also find blechy.
Just tasted Strega and Yellow Chartreuse. They are not dissimilar, except that Strega has strong anise notes. I find Yellow Chartreuse to be very harmoneous. Striper, I know you don't care for overwrought spirits, but next time a bottle of Strega is handy, try a sip. It's pretty sweet neat, but has mixing potential.
Searching Kindred Cocktails for Strega will find a couple of cocktails. I also just made a sidecar variation, which needs tweaking, but has potential. (2 oz Cognac, 1 oz Strega, 1 oz Lemon resulted in too spicy a cocktail. I'd try 2 : 1/2 : 1/2 next, possibly mixing the Strega with Cointreau or another fruit liqueur).
And Vino -- time for you to post up cocktails using our beloved "C" amari. And, no Centerbe isn't one of them. :-p
