3⁄4 oz Salers Gentiane

Stir, strain, up, twist.


Very nice. A light, fruity, earthy Boulevardier alternative.

  • Shockingly easy drinking
  • Made with Amer Sauvage (and 1 1/2 oz bourbon). As usual the first sip was too intense, but thereafter really enjoyable. Candy of Aperol balanced earthy bitter of the gentian.
  • I tried this with both 1.5 and 1.25 but the 1.25 had a much better balanced composition.

Great drink! Going into the rotation tonight!

I remember Colin telling me that Imbibe screwed up the recipe slightly and it should actually be 1.25 oz bourbon. Either way it makes a fine drink.
