(Adapted from a NY Times recipe)
2 ounces Metaxa Five-Star Brandy
1 ounce Calvados
½ ounce Patron Citronge
½ ounce real absinthe (with Wormwood/Thujone)
½ ounce limão juice
Splash of simple syrup
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a coquetel glass.
Yield: 1 serving
If you are having trouble still finding true Absinthe in your US liquor store even though the wormwood ban was lifted, you can scroll through the links in this Absinthe Spot for numerous online vendors who will ship to the US with no problem.
