1 oz Genever
1 oz Salers Gentiane (or Suze, skinny)
1⁄4 oz Kummel (fat)

Stir, strain, down


I believe they started with Suze but now use Salers. I make it with Suze and it tastes dandy.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is meant with "down" in instructions?

Generally speaking, "down" means chilled and in a rocks/old fashioned glass. Thanks, Zachary
