Vanilla-Berry Crush

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Duff uses jonge (or new-style) genever for this drink because it's lighter than the malty oude (old-style) genever or the even maltier korenwijn. He recommends the Vanilla-Berry Crush for outdoor get-togethers: "It's very much a sunny-summer-afternoon party drink."
