1⁄2 oz Suze
1⁄2 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano

Notes

For something a bit sweeter and less bitter, add 1/4 oz creme de pamplemousse liqueur.

History

Was listening to Valery Gergiev's version of Igor Stravinsky's "Le Sacre du printemps" ("The Rite of Spring") when creating this drink, and the name seemed appropriate. Entry in the Difford's Guide Suze contest: https://www.diffordsguide.com/cocktails/recipe/4294/rite-of-spring
