Dutch Alps Recipe

The Dutch Alps
Nick Caruana

This variation on the classic Irish Cocktail uses genever instead of Irish whiskey, and herbal genepy instead of absinthe. Rather than sweetening with orange curaçao, this one calls for rich, citrusy Amaro Nonino. The original is garnished with an olive—ditch it here for a few drops of saline solution. Just be careful with it, as a little goes a looong way.

Note: To make saline solution, mix 1 tablespoon kosher salt with 1 cup water.
