1 1/2 oz. Berkshire Mountain Greylock Gin
1 1/2 oz. Averna
2 dashes Bénédictine
2 dashes Jerry Thomas Bitters
Rinse Lucid AbsintheStir with ice and strain into a chilled Cocktail Glass and garnish with a flamed Lemon Peel.
Based this on a differently ratioed Merry Widow that I also riffed in making The Widow in Black. The version I riffed for that had descending amounts of Gin, Vermouth and Benedictine. The version of the Merry Widow I took this one from had equal parts Gin and Vermouth with dashes of Benedictine, Bitters and an Absinthe Wash.
