“I wanted to make a spirit-forward cocktail that could easily be enjoyed on a hot summer day. Diamondbacks have always been a favorite of mine so I went with a slightly more herbal/bitter variant.”
.25 oz (7.5 ml) Lucid Absinthe Supérieure, as rinse
1 lemon twist
1.5 oz (45 ml) Bulleit Bourbon
.5 oz (15 ml) Camus VS Elegance Cognac
.5 oz (15 ml) Suze
.125 oz (3.75 ml) Eli Mason Gomme Syrup
Rinse a chilled coupe with the absinthe.
Squeeze the twist into a mixing glass, then discard. Build ingredients in the glass. Add ice, stir, and strain into the coupe.
