The Sweet Resurrection

In Cocktail, Recipe on July 27, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Wooo…it’s been a long time! Sorry, kinda been super busy with work, and my other work, and life and such. In happier news, I’ve done lots of creating, but haven’t had the opportunity to update…times like this I’m glad I have a blog and not a pet!

So long story short, I was at the bar and had to come up with something on the fly. I was really craving a Corpse Reviver #2 but -sigh- there was no Lillet Blanc (we must rectify this)! So this is what I came up with. Kinda sweet, somewhat tart, a little anisey, and awesome…if I do say so myself.

  • 1 ounce Bluecoat Gin
  • 1 ounce St Germain
  • .5 ounce Lemon Juice
  • .5 ounce Dry Vermouth
  • 1 dash Vieux Carre Absinthe

Mix all ingredients in a shaker, shake like the dickens until well chilled and strain into a Martini Glass, garnish with a Lemon Zest. Enjoy! Pictures to come!
