If you don’t want to bother mixing up the absinthe bitters, you can substitute by rinsing the glass with a splash of absinthe or Green Chartreuse, leaving the excess in the glass.

Best with a milder gin like Beefeater (avoid Tanqueray). Dry vermouth can also be used in place of blanc vermouth.

  • 2½ oz London dry gin
  • ¾ oz blanc vermouth
  • ½ Maraschino liqueur
  • ¼ oz absinthe bitters
  • garnish: lemon twist

Stir ingredients with plenty of ice. Strain into a coupe.

Garnish with a lemon twist.
