Dr. Struwe’s Suze And Soda
A Swiss aperitif flavored with gentian roots; 15% ABV. Pablo Picasso depicted a bottle in his collage 'Verre et bouteille de Suze'.
Water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved, creating a fizzy texture. We treat soda water, club soda, seltzer and sparkling water the same.
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).
Pour the Suze over ice, top with 2-4 oz club soda or tonic water. Add a lemon twist. #build #ontherocks
