ways to use Chartreuse

I've had a bottle of green and a bottle of yellow Chartreuse in the back of my pantry for a while now and want to make more use of them. I have one recipe for figs and Chartreuse that's good - you halve them, drizzle them with green Chartreuse and honey, and broil for 10-15 minutes. Plate with juices and dollop with creme fraiche.

Well, that's all very nice, but I don't often have figs or creme fraiche as pantry staples here. I'm looking for an interesting winter drink or dessert thing that I can whip up quickly. What's your favorite way to drink or use this lovely liqueur?
