(*) Originally this was made with bitter Seville oranges, and after the Seville season ran out, it is made with 2 parts regular orange to 1 part lemon. Regardless of the citrus identity, 1 cup of sugar was used to create an oleo saccharum with the peels for 1-2 hours. Next, 1 cup of citrus juice was added; the mix was stirred to dissolve the sugar and then strained.
After Brick and Mortar, we made a stop at Moody's Falafel for sustenance, and this completely reinvigorated Camper. Therefore, we headed to our final destination of Craigie on Main. For a drink, I asked bartender Zachary Evans for the Root Down. What appealed to me about the drink was that it called for Salers Gentian Liqueur; like Suze, Salers is a French liqueur made with wild yellow gentian, but unlike Suze, it is apparently available in our market although I have not spotted on any shelves yet.
