Fjalar Goud, Netherlands: World Class 2012
Fjalarand I partied together in Amsterdam a few years ago, so it was great to see him again in Rio this year. During one of the final challenges I asked him to make me a drink that contained Chartreuse, and no fruit juices. The result was stupendous, and Fjalar was thoughtful enough to send me the recipe via facebook. Here it is–simple and delicious.
