1.5 oz #Absinthe (Butterfly Boston)
1.5 oz Rum (Old Ipswich)
A Splash of Lime Juice (maybe try Lemon or Orange Juice, don’t usually like Lime Juice but it seemed like a good fit in this)
2 Dashes Wormwood Bitters (Cocktail Kingdom)
Stir or shake in ice then pour into an ice filled Collins Glass and top with Ginger Beer. (Gods I love Ginger Beer). I’m sure I’ll try to refine it… a lot… but for now it’s fucking awesome!
