This classic from The Savoy Cocktail Book, adapted by Gaz Regan in The Joy of Mixology, is essentially an absinthe Manhattan. Go very easy on the absinthe – treat it like bitters and add just a couple drops, or wash the inside of the glass with it instead of adding it to the shaker.
- 2 part Irish whiskey or Bourbon or Rye whiskey or Scotch
- 1 part Sweet vermouth
- 1 dash Aromatic bitters
- 1 dash Absinthe
Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a citrus twist.
