Build in mixing glass over ice, shake for 30 seconds, strain into coupe.


Nice combo of malty, bitter, herbal and fruit notes.


9/27/10 Just purchased genever, what to do with it? Thankfully I'd made a classic Tulip from Craddock's Savoy book, and this is a riff.

I made this last night - there's something special about Genever + apricot which is worth exploring. Three suggestions for next time... the Punt e Mes was a bit much - I don't think it needs the extra bitterness, so maybe something like Dolin. It's a bit large at 4 oz (not that it stopped me from drinking it). I'm very interested in seeing how the Bols Barrel Aged Genever works here.

Dropped the "fresh squeezed" note because, ya know, all juices are assumed to be fresh squeezed in the land of Kindred Cocktails.

didn't really care for it, acidic sweetness from the orange juice didn't pair well with the vermouth and genever for my taste

Too sweet for me. Maybe an apricot eau de vie would be better.
