The Chyrsanthemum: a Simple & Light Vermouth Cocktail

This three ingredient cocktail is as elegant as it is simple.  It allows vermouth, which normally plays a supporting role, to take center stage.  A wonder low ABV option that dates back more than 100 years.

A beautiful, tall coupe glass filled with a light amber-colored liquid and an ornate orange slice garnish that looks perhaps like a bird. The background has a chic apothecary feel.

Ingredients

2 ounces dry vermouth (we favor Dolin Dry)
1 ounce Bénédictine
Absinthe, to rinse

 

Method

Rinse the inside of a chilled coupe with absinthe, and set aside.  Add Vermouth and Bénédictine to a mixing glass with ice, and stir. Strain into the chilled coupe, garnish with an orange twice, or if you're feeling fancy, something like what you see here.  

Note: The classic spec calls for 3 dashes of absinthe added to the mixing glass, but we find that can be quite overpowering, so opt for a rinse instead. If you simply adore absinthe, try increasing to taste
