Word of the Day: chartreuse

Posted by

Chartreuse is a color that’s a blend of yellow and green, a little like green apples. The color is named for the liqueur by the same name, which comes in yellow or green. Beginning in the Middle Ages, the liqueur was made in a Carthusian monastery in France. The monastery was called la-Grande Chartreuse, after a mountain range in the French Alps where the monastery originated.
