Obituary Cocktail

This Obituary Cocktail is a little unexpected, and a lot satisfying. Basically a killer Martini with a splash of absinthe, this would certainly be a great choice of deathbed drink, but let’s hope you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy many more. Since there are only 3 ingredients and they come together in a flash, you certainly won’t die of thirst. For more tipples with just a trio of components, try Jackson Cannon’s Jack Rose and the Gold Rush too.

And for more wickedly delicious ways to use absinthe, try our Death in the P.M. cocktail recipe, and our Sazerac cocktail recipe.
