I got to experiment with my bottle of Salers Gentiane a bit  weekend. First drink I with the Harry Palmer, as it seemed a nice simple way to test it out. I used I used Punt e Mes for the vermouth, and maybe the overpowered this cocktail. It was good, but the subtleties of the Salers disappeared. It did provide a nice extra bitterness, sort of a more ethereal Manhattan.


Also had a Salers drink with my new bottle of Cocchi Americano. The Little Valiant was an awesome, low alcohol aperitif. Exactly the sort of thing you would want as an enticing pre-prandial. I might up the lemon juice when I make it again.
