  • Increased gin to 1 oz, reduced Suze to 0.5 oz, added salt to coupe rim, garnish with lavender sprig. — ★★★★
  • Not bad; nice flavor change — ★★★
  • Made with Amère Sauvage (reduced to 1/2oz with gin boosted to 1oz). Even so reduced, the bitter woodiness was hardcore. — ★★★
  • It's hard to not read this next to the Last Word: Suze is more bitter, but less complex and herbal, than Chartreuse. The lemon is also simpler than lime. The result is that the maraschino comes through too forcefully IMHO. — ★★★
  • Excellent, though I think it works best with a little more gin and a bit less Suze. — ★★★★★
  • I wanted to just use of the last drops of Suze we had, so went with 1 of everything except 3/4 on the Maraschino, and that made for the perfect balance. — ★★★★
