Not Coming Home

Adapted from a recipe by Tim Rabior, Oddfellows, Miami Beach

Not Coming Home Tim Rabior

“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.
