Else Lasker-Schüler

Benjamin Zorn, La Loba Cantina, Brooklyn, NY

“Working with this absinthe made me want to make it star but not overpower. I thought immediately of an absinthe nog or flip and saw inspiration in a classic, the Colleen Bawn. I named my version after a German Jewish playwright and poet who only wrote in Yiddish, rather than give over to the language of the oppressor.”

1 oz (30 ml) Laird’s Applejack

.75 oz (22.5 ml) Stroma Liqueur

.5 oz (15 ml) Jade 1901 Absinthe Supérieure

.25 oz (7.5 ml) gum syrup

1 whole egg

Grated nutmeg and grated cinnamon, as garnish

Dry-shake, then add ice and shake hard. Strain into a chilled coupe and add the garnish.
