“Crème de la” Aperitif

  • Serves

    makes 1


Pairing tart, sweet crème de cassis (blackcurrant liquor) and bitter, herbal Suze shouldn’t work, but when you pour bubbles on top of it, it does—for the length of a drink, at least.


  • 34 oz. Suze
  • 12 oz. crème de cassis
  • Sparkling wine
  • Lemon twist


Step 1

In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine the Suze and crème de cassis. Stir until well-chilled then strain into a coupe glass. Top with sparkling wine and a lemon twist.
