Bitter gentian liqueur made from the root of the Alpine gentian flower was all the rage in the 18th and 19th century. Its hyper-bitter flavor encourages the production of saliva and digestive juices, aiding with digestion after a big meal.
Now this classic ingredient is seeing a comeback as a cocktail ingredient, where its bitter flavor is tempered and enhanced by spirits, sweeteners and juices.
