1 oz Rothman & Winter Orchard Pear
1/2 oz Water
1/4 oz Absinthe
1 dash Acid Phosphate
Build in a snifter glass and stir. Note: this is a room temperature cocktail.
(*) Perhaps a dash or two of Bittermens Boston Bittahs would donate enough chamomile notes.
After Drink, I made my way to the far end of South Boston to meet up with Andrea at Local 149 for dinner. For a beverage, I asked bartender John Mayer about the Miss Francine Kelly on the menu. John described how he was tinkering at home with Bols Genver, Belle de Brillet pear liqueur, and absinthe and noticed that it got worse after adding ice. Therefore, he decided that the combination worked best as a room temperature cocktail. When I inquired about the name, John laughed and said that everyone thought that it was a nice sounding Irish lady's name; however, it is their nickname for the "marry f*** kill" game that they sometimes play at the bar.
