Claire Ptak of London's Violet Bakery (and the author of the bakery's cookbook) likes mixing angelica, a distinct, licorice-like herb, and Chartreuse with tart rhubarb because it cuts the sweetness of the sugar and lends a more complex flavor. Look for angelica fresh at botanical stores and plant nurseries, or in its dried form on starwest-botanicals.com.
