Suze – Suze is a French apéritif. It has a pleasant bitter flavor and is made from gensian. It’s hard to describe it’s taste, someone said it tastes like dandelion greens with a little citrus.
Tonic Water – use your favorite brand. We try to buy quality tonic water, especially when it’s on sale.
Garnish – garnish with a lemon or lime wheel, or omit the garnish.
Fill a collins glass with ice.
Add 1 1/2 ounces of Suze into the glass.
Top with tonic water.
Expert Tip: place a bar spoon in the glass and pour the tonic water down the bar spoon. This helps get carbonation through the whole cocktail and keeps it from fizzing so much.
Garnish with lime or lemon wheel, if desired.
That’s it! You just made the easiest, lightest and most refreshing cocktail.
It has a pleasantly bitter taste that I really love.
