Striptease

Striptease cocktail with absinthe, salt, mezcal, blanc vermouth, lime juice, soursop (guanábana) nectar, and agave nectar

The Striptease is a brilliantly creative concoction by Yana Volfson, beverage director at Cosme in Manhattan.

It is incredibly fragrant and flavorful, with notes of smoke and flowers and tropical fruits and herbs. Blanc vermouth is a delicate ingredient, with its light floral notes – but it still manages to shine in the Striptease, against the big smoke of the mezcal and the tropical funk of the soursop nectar.

Instructions

Start by dipping the edge of a short glass in absinthe, then rolling it in the salt. Add ice to the glass – preferably one large cube or sphere. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and strain into the 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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
