An old New Orleans cocktail. Was originally made with Cognac (and is still delicious with such).
The manliest pink tinged drink I know of.
3 oz Rye (Sazerac or Rittenhouse preferred)
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
5 dashes Peychauds Bitters
1 tsp absinthe
1 slice of lemon rind
Lots of crushed ice
Fill 2 lowball glasses with ice.
Glass 1: Add rye, simple syrup, and Peychauds bitters. Stir with a mixing spoon. Wait until other glass is ready.
Glass 2: When very cold and even a little frosty, discard the ice and rinse with absinthe. Discard some or all of the excess. (I let about half stay behind).
Strain the contents of glass one into glass two. Express the lemon rind into the drink and drop in.
