Aside from the fact that the Green Ghost is a delicious cocktail, with a lovely appearance and a killer name, not much is known about it. It first appears in print in 1937, in the Cafe Royal Cocktail Book, where it's attributed to a J. B. Hurrell.

Never mind that. This tasty drink highlights the Chartreuse and will impress anyone who likes a pretty drink because unlike many pretty drinks, this one has flavor to match its beauty.
