1 oz Dry vermouth
1⁄2 oz Cointreau
3 dashes Vilya Spirits* Absinthe Verte
1 twist Lemon zest
Stir over and strain into a chilled cocktail (Nick and Nora) glass. Express a lemon twist and dwell on morose thoughts.
*my bottles are still labeled as the pre-Vilya “Ridge Distillery”
Beautiful day of reflection that this drink just seemed to compliment. This year started some extremely significant changes for the better. I'm a long way from climbing out of a very deep valley but I ain't getting any younger.
They say that only the good die young so I must not be very good.
