Comment:

An aromatic bittersweet sour with heavy herbal influences.

About:

Created by Sam Finch at the The Milk Thistle, Bristol, England. Sam says, “The Blushing Monk came from a moment of back bar chaos, with the main intention being to combine Bénédictine with Aperol following the blueprint of a classic sour. Suze became the machinery of balance in the drink, the heavy vegetal notes of the gentian offsetting the sweetness already in the mix whilst reinforcing the light bitterness of the Aperol. Lillet Blanc lifts and brightens whilst the lime brings bold zestiness to the party.

The name simply references the drink's lustily 'blushing' hue and spins on the heritage of the Benedictine Liqueur; a fresh, flirty and suggestively lively flavour experience."
