“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.
