2 oz Bourbon
1/2 shot of Absinthe
0.5 oz Campari
0.5 oz Gin
1 sugar cube
Bitter Truth Creole Bitters (enough to soak the sugar cube)
Lemon zests – to rim the glass and a spiral for garnish
Chill a crystal glass (or other) with ½ shot of Absinthe, packed with ice and water, let cool for a bit then swirl and set aside. Rub the inside of the glass with a lemon zest, add a sugar cube soaked in the Bitter Truth Creole Bitters to your glass and muddle to release the flavors. Add the bourbon, campari, and gin. Stir with a lemon zest threaded onto a cocktail stirrer.
