This cocktail is very easy to prepare and non-committal, too, as these ingredients are often available in smaller format bottles, so give it a try.
- 2 oz. dry vermouth
- 1 oz. Benedictine (a liqueur flavored with 27 flowers, herbs, roots and spices)
- 3 dashes of absinthe
Put ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, strain and serve.
Garnish with an orange twist!
