Vincent’s Ruin- @Teardroplounge Portland from @tobyTPH Chicago

24 Sep

1.5 oz. Bourbon (Bulleit)
.25 oz. St. Germain
.75 oz. Lemon
.25 oz gomme syrup
Absinthe rinse
Dash orange bitters (50-50)

This cocktail was a great example of a simple balance of complex flavors. It is reminiccent of a preprohibition cocktail except for the inclusion of St. Germain, a relatively new spirit. It is a welcome addition, as along with the requisite sweetness, are the floral and botanical notes to mix with the citrus and the spices of the absinthe which are mostly present only on the nose. Glad this drink traversed the nation.
