2 Dashes Absinthe. (Verte de Fougerolles)
1/2 Glass Kina Lillet. (Generous 1 oz Cocchi Americano)
1/2 Glass Dry Gin. (Generous 1 oz Junipero Gin)
Shake (Stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze orange peel on top.
This is the first time I’ve used the Cocchi Americano in a cocktail and not been pleased with the results.
Something about this combination just didn’t quite work for me.
Especially odd, considering how much I enjoyed the very similar Deep Sea Cocktail.
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.
