Cocktail á la Louisiane
Ingredients:- 1 oz. Rittenhouse Rye*
- 1 oz. Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth*
- 1 oz. Benedictine*
- 3 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
- 3-4 dashes Herbsaint (or Absinthe)
Fill a mixing glass with ice and add the rye, vermouth, Benedictine, Peychaud's and Herbsaint. Stir 30 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with Luxardo Maraschino cherry.
*The original recipe calls for .75 oz. each of the Rye, Vermouth, and Benedictine, but that makes a very small cocktail.
