6 cl bourbon
2 cl sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 cl absinthe
lemon peel to garnish
combine bourbon, vermouth, and Angostura in an ice-filled mixing glass; stir.
rinse a chilled cocktail glass with the absinthe. (you can pour out the extra if you prefer; I don't.)
strain the drink into the cocktail glass.
garnish with lemon peel.
@frankiesaxx I may try making one of those tonight. A Manhattan, but with a hint of absinthe? Sounds great.
@morganth It's pretty nice :) I generally like the classics. G&T, Manhattan, etc.
@frankiesaxx I've been fooling around with old cocktails, thanks to a copy of the Savoy Cocktail Book. Had to buy a few ingredients (including absinthe) that a lot of them depended on.
@frankiesaxx Love that! I'll post one when I get home.
