What do you call a New Orleans resident who takes their civic and drinking responsibilities seriously?
...An absinthe-ee voter.

I'm officially ready to be a dad. 🤓

This New Orleans classic cocktail has experienced less of a resurgence than its sisters (the Sazerac and Vieux Carré) but it's a beautiful use for your Benedictine and Absinthe if you like the other two. Less bold than a Sazerac, but less subtle than a Vieux Carre, it's recently become one of my nightly go-tos.

2 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye
¾ oz sweet vermouth
½ oz Benedictine
2 dashes St. George absinthe
3 dashes Peychaud's bitters
Luxardo cherry (not pictured due to casualties – RIP to our fallen garnish)

Combine all in a shaker of ice, and strain into a coupe.
