Yellow herbal liqueur
Yellow herbal liqueurs typically take their color from saffron, an expensive spice long prized for its flavor and vivid color.
These yellow liqueurs are flavored with a myriad of herbs and spices, but most feature the flavor of gentian root front-and-center. Most are a little sweeter than their green counterparts (see yellow vs. green Chartreuse, for example).
Typically, these liqueurs are fairly interchangeable – but we’ll let you know if a particular recipe calls for a specific brand of liqueur.
