Obituary recipe with gin and absinthe

This grim sipper comes to us from SeriousEats.com writer Blake Royer. Royer calls for absinthe in his recipe, but also notes that an anise liqueur like Pastis will work well in its place. Pastis is much sweeter than absinthe; you might prefer to omit it from the mix and instead swirl it around the glass, discarding the excess (this is called a “rinse”).

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir with ice until quite chilly, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
