I have heard of it served as a cocktail, but I think you’d need to tweak the ratios to make it more balanced if you plan on sipping it.

I’d advise reserving this one for special occasions or home consumption, as it’s not unusual for a single shot of Chartreuse (not to mention mezcal) to cost upwards of $20 at some cocktail bars.
