The Modern Cocktail

My version:

  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • heavy pinch of sugar
  • 1 oz whiskey
  • 1 oz sloe gin
  • 1 dash absinthe
  • 1 dash orange bitters

Add the lemon juice and sugar to a cocktail shaker and stir to combine. Add the whisky, sloe gin, absinthe and orange bitters, and fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
