101 Best New Cocktails: Not Coming Home by Tim Rabior, Oddfellows, Miami Beach
Not Coming Home
Adapted from a recipe by Tim Rabior, Oddfellows, Miami Beach
“I came up with this one while working at Sanctuaria in St. Louis. I was on an absinthe kick and was trying to make cocktails with it that were more palatable to the common consumer than just absinthe, sugar and water. The name comes from lyrics in Every Time I Die’s song White Smoke, though I found it applicable to this drink as well,” Tim Rabior.
45 ml (1.5 oz) Dolin Blanc
22.5 ml (.75 oz) St. George absinthe
22.5 ml (.75 oz) St. Germain
4 Dashes Cortas Orange Flower Water
1 grapefruit twist, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish
gaz sez: Absolutely brilliant use of absinthe here. Brilliant. It’s there, but it plays nice with its friends in the Not Coming Home. Very impressive.
