|2⁄3 fl oz||Rutte Old Simon Genever|
|1⁄2 fl oz||Suze gentian liqueur|
|1 1⁄3 fl oz||*Special ingredient #1 (see below)|
|4 dash||La Fee Parisienne absinthe|
|1⁄6 fl oz||Giffard Sugar Cane Syrup|
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.”
