Elusive Lucidity

Carol Donovan, Intoxicatingly Fun Cocktails and Burton Place, Chicago, IL

“It took some time to get to a place where I felt the Lucid Absinthe was properly celebrated without taking over the drink. I think I achieved a way to enjoy Absinthe midday.”

2 rosemary sprigs

.5 oz (15 ml) Lucid Absinthe Supérieure

1 oz (30 ml) Carpano Dry Vermouth

.25 oz (7.5 ml) The American Juice Company’s Harriet Peacher Stowe

.25 oz (7.5 ml) Eli Mason Demerarra Syrup

2 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters No. 6

1 small rosemary sprig, as garnish

1 lemon twist

Muddle the rosemary and Absinthe in a shaker. Add remaining ingredients. Shake over ice, and strain into a chilled coupe. Add the garnish. Squeeze the twist over the drink, then discard.
