It just started snowing again here and I’m fed up with it. I need sun and warmth. Just a tiny bit.
1/3 gill of gin
1/6 gill of French vermouth
1 teaspoonful of Angostura Bitters
1 teaspoonful of absinthe
1 dash of lemon peel juice
1/2 tumblerful of broken ice
Half fill the tumbler with broken ice and add the Angostura Bitters. Then add the French vermouth, the gin and the absinthe. Stir well and pass through a strainer into a cocktail glass. Serve with a dash of lemon peel juice on top.
It is very refreshing in hot weather, my little book says.
