Back to The Lure of the Land

by Andrew Chalk

Lure of the Land is an explosion of aromas: anise, and mints come into this cocktail from the French Grande Absente absinthe; juniper, sweet almond, thyme, angelica, and iris from the Provencal Gin XII, added with a touch of cinnamon, and nutmeg from Amaro Cocchi.

LURE OF THE LAND Rinse a cocktail coupe or martini glass with .25 oz of Grande Absente 69, discard excess and set glass aside. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir. Strain up into Absente-rinsed glass. Garnish with orange ribbon and small sprig of mint. Ingredients

  • .25 oz of Grande Absente

  • 1.5 oz XII Dry Gin

  • 0.5 oz Cocchi Americano

  • 0.25 oz Leopold Brothers NY Sour Apple Liqueur

  • 0.25 oz Amontillado Sherry

  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice

  • 0.25 oz Honey Syrup (2 parts honey:1 part water)
