A wonderfully delicate and dry aperitif. Genever provides a bready spirituous base over which flavours of gentian, fennel and absinthe are layered.
Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Emily Muscutt at Toto, Newcastle, England. Emily says “This drink began life as a low alc./vol. cocktail, minus the genever, to reflect the trend for lower alcoholic drinks. A drink to be drunk in the afternoon - a time traditionally for tea.”
