new york minute

1 1/2 oz Vodka (Vessica)
1/2 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
3/4 oz Grenadine
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash St. George Absinthe (12 drop)

Shake with ice and strain into a Nick & Nora glass (coupe).
Two Tuesdays ago, I reached for Toby Maloney and Emma Janzen's The Bartender's Manifesto and found the New York Minute as a recipe that I had not made yet. The drink was crafted by Alyssa Heidt as a riff on the Pan American Clipper from Charles H. Baker Jr. with the biggest change being the apple brandy aspect being cut considerably by the addition of vodka. Once prepared, the New York Minute lept to the nose with apple, berry, and anise aromas. Next, lemon and red fruit notes on the sip gave way to apple, pomegranate, and licorice flavors on the swallow.
