Just made one of these...after getting the Suze outta curiosity, tried several different cocktails that featured it...this by far my fave...light, refreshing, great for the late summer wind-down...

Would like to know what Suze is. That's what my son in law calls me!

Hi Suzanne! Suze is a a strongly herbaceous French gentian liqueur. You can find out more about it here:

I have a mammoth sage plant in my backyard so this needs to happen. Plus, it's a good excuse to buy a bottle of Suze!
