Sunset Cocktail: Good Striker

1 oz Copper & Kings American Brandy
1 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
2 dashes Dr. Adam Aphrodite Bitters
rinse Copper & Kings Absinthe Blanche

Rinse a chilled Cocktail glass with Absinthe. Stir remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the Absinthe rinsed glass. Garnish with an expressed orange peel.

I took this from an entry on Kindred Cocktails called the Holy Striker but made some drastic changes on everything but the inspiration. I may adjust the ratios a bit but all in all this is a lovely herbal cocktail with all of the ingredients playing well together. This is one of those cases where the Orange peel is essential.

This one is named after a kenning of the deity Sucellus, a Gaulish Hammer God who is often depicted with, not only his hammer, but with a barrel or olla of wine and sometimes a faithful dog. From my understanding his hammer is more of a craftsman’s mallet than a weapon but it could also be a barrel of beer on a pole.

He’s a depicted as a middle aged guy with a beard who’s into his Underworld girl, Nantosuelta, from the Underworld, I can relate. Hopefully he likes this offering. Sucellus does like his drink (and goth chicks).
