1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Hendrick's (Midsummer)
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
3⁄4 oz Bergamot liqueur, Italicus
1⁄2 oz Suze
1⁄4 oz Grapefruit juice (White)

Shake, strain, up.


The basic idea of this came from @Drunklab - it was a way to solve two problems - that Hendrick's is delicious but difficult outside a G&T - it lacks bitter/green notes. The Italicus is delicious but needs less sugar or more punch. This now makes me think of a classic fragrance family called Fougere, which means fern-like - think citrus, lavender, tonka and oakmoss.

Thanks - it's just unfortunate it's hard to find white grapefruit anymore. Thanks,  Zachary

Hmm... how big is your barspoon? Mine is about 1/2 teaspoon or two dashes. Thanks,  Zachary
