It's crazy, but it totally worked and I love it sooooo much! I bottle and keep Negroni* on hand for occasions such as these! Also keep in mind that the measurements are exact! Too much Rye and the drink is way off!
1 3/4 oz Negroni
1 1/4 oz Rye
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
St. George Absinthe Verte Rinse
Rinse rocks glass with Absinthe and chill. In tin, combine Negroni and Rye over cracked ice. Stir and strain into rinsed glass. Express and discard Lemon Peel. Santé!
*Negroni: I always use Plymouth Gin for the smoothness, never Bombay or the like. This bottle also has Carpano Antica and of course, Campari.
