A Cocktail Called Catharsis

Relax. Enjoy the Weekend. Have Some Gin.

We could spend all day talking about Freud.

The pork neck. The schnitzel. The onion jam-topped burger...

Right, we're not talking about Sigmund. See, we're less interested in psychoanalysis and more interested in Austrian-leaning brasseries, Michelin-starred chefs and where to find good drinks in the Village.

Which brings us to this particular Freud, a recently opened NYC restaurant that's serving a floral and aromatic drink called Catharsis. It combines gin, dry vermouth and Suze—that last one is a French aperitif flavored with gentian. Picasso was a fan, just in case you were curious which Spanish artists enjoyed it.

And here's the recipe, just in case you want to stop reading and commence drinking.


1 oz gin
3/4 oz Suze
3/4 oz Dolin Blanc

Stir all ingredients with ice, then strain into a coupe. Garnish with a lemon and orange peel.
