1 ½ oz Plymouth gin
¾ oz Lillet
¼ oz St Germain
place all into an iced mixing glass and stir
strain into an absinthe-rinsed cocktail glass
I had to do something about my "buying faster than trying" problem -- this took care of the Lillet and St. Germain (will have to do a side-by-side on the gins at some point soon). The St. Germain on its own was lovely, lovely stuff. I sort of wish that this recipe was a bit heavier on it and might try it again with slightly different proportions. This cocktail has a great buzzy taste, and the whiff of anise is pleasant.
