Fleur Sauvage Cinq
Enjoy at: Savoy Society, 102 E Liberty St.
Gin, Green Apple, Doline Blanc and Absinthe
This is Savoy’s version of the Le Fleur Sauvage cocktail. Bartender Tart Johnson breaks down the components of the cocktail on a Friday night in Savannah.
“We start with a little bit of simple syrup. Then juice from green apples that we juice every day. It gives the drink a bright fresh tartness. Add some Dolan Blanc vermouth, which is a little sweeter than dry vermouth. Next, we do a London Dry gin and before we shake it, we rinse the glass with an absinthe atomizer. Finally, we do a whip shake so not too much ice, and then pour.” said Johnson.
Meet the mixologist: Tart Johnson
Like many in Savannah, Tart Johnson is a transplant that’s made the city his home. Originally from Louisiana, Johnson has lived in Savannah for 10 years and is one of the people who opened Savoy Society.
“Yeah! There are 4 of us that opened Savoy in the very beginning. We’ve been open for 2 years now and it’s been really fun,” said Tart.
In those two short years, Savoy has become one of the most popular bars in Savannah with a variety of food and drinks.
You can find Tart at Savoy shaking and stirring up delicious drinks, all while having friendly conversations with customers at the bar.
