Juan Meyer's original recipe calls for equal parts: Redemption rye whiskey, Suze, Amaro de Montenegro, and lemon juice. It's very tasty but I couldn't resist switching and blending whiskies and proportions. Both versions create a bittersweet, aperitif-style cocktail.
Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Juan Meyer, Norwalk, United States. He told us, "I love Paper Planes, it's my go-to cocktail at any restaurant at any time of day. I also love Suze with its earthy undertones that complement the gentian liqueur, so this is my combination of both."
