52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Chartreuse

I have some people to thank today. First of all to Banjo Baily for coming up with a bottle of Chartreuse liqueur in about 12 hours flat. Anytime you need beautiful alcoholic beverage bottles, Banjo is your guy!

Second, to Bruce. Bruce didn’t expect to have to model this week, much less have to model twice. My second model fell through and Bruce had to be putting up with me yelling at him about his hair on two separate avis. Bruce is probably waiting for the day that I talk to him about something other than modeling for me, and sadly today was not the day. You are a true friend, Bruce. So without further ado you have Bruce 1 as Jay Gatsby on the left and Bruce 2 as Nick Carraway on the right. Alas, Daisy would not fit in the picture. Now this novel reference may bring up torturous tenth-grade English class memories for some of you, but set it aside for a moment and just appreciate the Chartreuse! Now I’ve never tried it, but apparently it is a very lovely and complicated liqueur to make. You can get a general idea about it here.


“Finally we came to Gatsby’s own apartment, a bedroom and a bath, and an Adam study, where we sat down and drank a glass of some Chartreuse he took from a cupboard in the wall.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
