part time lover

1 1/2 oz Dorothy Parker Gin (Bombay Dry)
3/4 oz Manzanilla Sherry (Tio Pepe Fino)
3/4 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 tsp Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1 dash Absinthe (8 drop St. George)

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass (cocktail coupe), and garnish with lemon oil from a twist (include twist).
For the cocktail hour two Tuesdays prior, I selected Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book and found Jillian Vose's 2014 Part Time Lover. It came across as a Martini mixed with a hint of Last Word, but it was different from the hyphenated Part-Time Lover. Here, the nose was greeted by lemon, nutty cherry, and herbal aromas. Next, a semi-dry white grape sip flowed into gin, briny, savory herbal, and nutty cherry flavors on the swallow with a light anise finish.
