Moulin Rouge #2

Francois Vera, Pour Vous | Los Angeles

Francois Vera’s Moulin Rouge #2 counts on Suze to balance the sweetness of strawberries and vanilla, for a drier rendition of Vera’s original recipe. “It brings balance to a cocktail without hurting the palate of those who don’t enjoy much bitterness,” he explains.


Serving: 1

  • 1 ounce vodka, preferably Absolut Elyx
  • 3/4 ounce Amaro Nonino
  • 1/2 ounce Suze
  • 1 barspoon Madagascar vanilla
  • 3/4 ounce lemon
  • 3/4 ounce strawberry juice
  • 3 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • sparkling rosé, preferably d'Alsace rosé brut, to top

  1. Shake all ingredients, except for brut rosé, with ice.
  2. Strain into a flute and top with brut rosé.
