Made with Amere Sauvage and R&W Orchard Apricot. Agave/pickle freshness on the nose, white grapefruit along with apricot on the sip, bitter woodiness joins grapefruit on the long finish. Quite interesting. — ★★★★
It should be 1/2 oz apricot brandy - I change it in the recipe, but it keeps reverting to apricot liqueur for some reason. FYI, Suze tastes like a liqueur of chamomile, lime zest and new mown hay. It's sunny and warm and quite delicious.
I added the ingredient "Dry Apricot Brandy" to distinguish high-quality, unsweetened, high-proof fruit brandy from Apricot Liqueur, which is sometimes called Apricot Brandy. I hope this eliminates potential confusion.
So this recipe has been up for over 2 years but I just got a bottle of Suze and this appealed... I followed the recipe exactly as the ratios looked great - but used Rothman and Winter Orchard Apricot. What a GREAT drink! Thank you! Going into my short list of favorites for now.
