3/4 oz St. Germain
3/4 oz Cointreau
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass rinsed with absinthe (Pernod). Garnish with a lemon twist.
After the Naked and Famous, I decided to try another equal parts drink and one recommended by Devin of the Periodista Tales. Besides obscure Cuban drinks that take root in Boston, Devin is also a big fan of Sam Ross's work, and he recommended Sam's Sunflower Cocktail to me. The recipe appeared in StarChefs back in 2008, and, like many drinks from that year, it was not a big surprised that it contained St. Germain. With the absinthe rinse, gin, lemon, and orange liqueur, the Sunflower did have hints of being a Corpse Reviver No. 2 variation despite the name.
