1 1⁄4 oz Gin
1 oz Amaro (Liquore Kapriol (must use this))
3⁄4 oz Suze
1⁄2 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin (Dolin blanc)
1 twst Orange peel

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe, squeeze and discard orange zest


I've hesitated to post this due to my perception that Liquore Kapriol could be hard to find. It's very heavily juniper-flavoured - supergin, if you like - and I've never tasted an amaro like it. But if you can find it, try this drink. I hope you like it as much as I do.


Named for its resemblance in colour to Vaseline glass - see photo. The glass contains small amounts of uranium salts which give it its colour and make it glow brightly under UV light. The drink does NOT contain uranium!
