So excited to finally try this – took me a long time to find Lillet Blanc


Basically: The cocktail is simple enough, if you have the ingredients. Quality ingredients are usually worth it – saves your brain for later (i.e., cheapo Triple Sec made with high fructose corn syrup and orange-esque chemicals will hurt you the next day).

1 oz gin

1 oz Cointreau or Orange Curaçao. (My current favorite is Pierre Ferrand Dry, but I need more experimenting before that is definitive. I’ve tried Grand Marnier, Cointreau, and Pierre Ferrand, all taste great in this cocktail.)

1 oz Lillet Blanc

1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 or 2 drops of Absinthe. Not a dash, just enough.

Mix in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake vigorously, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. You could add a cherry at the end, but I never have.

much better than a Bloody Mary, trust me…
