1 1/2 oz Rhum Agricole (Rhum Clement Premiere Canne)
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
3/4 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1 dash Absinthe (12 drop St. George)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Fridays ago, I decided to make a recipe that I spotted on Kindred Cocktails sourced from a Punch Drinks article called the Necromancer. This was Vince Bright's Corpse Reviver #2 riff featuring rhum agricole that he crafted at Chicago's Lost Lake, and it reminded me of the Sinking Ship Swizzle that I did as a drink of the day back in 2016 (as a rhum Corpse Reviver crossed with a Royal Bermuda Yacht Club). Here, the Necromancer awoke with an apricot and peach aroma. Next, grapefruit and nectarine notes on the sip transformed into grassy rum flavors on the swallow that finished with ginger, anise, and clove.
