Created by Herve Luu at La Poudriere, Paris
20 ml extra dry vermouth
20ml coriander gin
15ml gentiane water
garnish/ orange zest & griotte
For this cocktail we wanted to stay in the line of a dry aperitif the one opening up your palate before a good meal, with a sweet taste of what we call in French reviens-y ( yes come back to your drink) gentiane is pairing perfectly well with italicus, it comes from our french roots, the overall idea was to select the best component to a balanced cocktail, simple and easy to drink and remember.
