Squid Mixes: Suzy's Hanky
Suzy's Hanky is David Lebovitz's variation on a Hanky Panky. He takes out the Frenet-Branca and adds Suze and Grand Marnier (or Cointreau or triple sec). Lebovitz published his recipe in Drinking French.
Suze is the star here. It's a gentian liqueur, providing a bitter flavor with citrus notes. The intense bitterness is reminiscent of Campari, yet somehow lighter. Both my wife and English Prof were impressed with the cocktail.
