sicilian message

1 oz Rye (Old Overholt)
1 oz Averna
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Grenadine
1 heavy dash Absinthe (1/2 bsp Kübler)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Fridays ago, I was intrigued by a drink of the week that Backbar posted on their Instagram along with the recipe in the comments. That cocktail was the Sicilian Message, and I decided to make it at home since I would be working all week save for Sunday when we would be attending a baijiu class. The Sicilian Message proffered up a fruity, caramel, and anise aroma to the nose. Next, the lime, caramel, and berry sip reminded me of Giuseppe's Lady, and the swallow came through with rye, herbal, and caramel notes with an anise finish.
