The Garden of Eden

Sweet, sour, bitter and herbal all at once, the recipe makes a short drink, but you can easily add soda water for a longer-lasting, highball-style cocktail.

Inspired by a low-ABV cocktail known as “The Vatican,” this herbal concoction has a little something for everyone. Sweet, sour, bitter and herbal all at once, the recipe makes a short drink, but you can easily add soda water for a longer-lasting, highball-style cocktail. Suze, a heavy-hitting bitter gentian liqueur, mixes with Génépy Le Chamois, a floral alpine liqueur, and blanc vermouth, which adds sweet herbal notes. Lemon, simple syrup and a basil leaf round out this bright, refreshing trip to The Garden of Eden.
