1/3 Italian Vermouth. (3/4 oz Carpano Antica)
2/3 Absinthe. (1 1/2 oz Kübler Absinthe)
Shake (stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass. (Mint Sprig garnish.)
To be honest, this isn’t the world’s most attractive cocktail. Kind of looks like a cup of tea with milk. Maybe if you’re from the other side of the pond, this is somehow appetizing?
It is, however, somewhat more tasty than it is appearing or sounding. Do give it a nice long stir, though. That’s a lot of Absinthe.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
