Ingredients: 2 oz gin, 1/4 dry vermouth, 1/4 oz absinthe. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass.
Source: The website of an absinthe distillery that I’ve since lost. However, you can also find the cocktail recipe on cocktails.about.com.
Whoa puppies. This cocktail isn’t for light drinkers; it really packs a punch, both flavor-wise and alcohol-wise. You have to be a big fan of both gin and absinthe to enjoy this one. Admittedly, I like both, but this cocktail was a little… much. Maybe in the summer it would be better.
