Comment:

Juan Meyer's original recipe calls for equal parts: Redemption rye whiskey, Suze, Amaro de Montenegro and lemon juice. It's very tasty but perhaps a tad on the boozy and dry/bitter side for many palates. Hence, we've switched the American whiskey and reduced the proportions of the bitter and sour ingredients to make this a still bittersweet, but more approachable aperitif cocktail.

Origin:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Juan Meyer, Norwalk, United States, who 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 under tones that complement the gentian liqueur, so this is my combination of both."
