A famous aperitif made with a blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc wines, fruit liqueurs, and a brandy-based maceration of Peruvian quinine and Spanish, Moroccan and Haitian oranges. Aromas of honey, flowers, and oranges are echoed on the palate along with delicate notes of tropical fruit, dandelion, mint and pine. A lovely floral, fruity sweetness wraps up with a dry finish.
Enjoy this on its own over ice with a lemon twist, or mixed with a light tonic or sparkling herbal tea beverage, or in a Corpse Reviver #2.
