- 2 ounces rye whiskey
- 1/3 ounce simple syrup
- 1/4 ounce absinthe
- 2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
- 1 dash Angostura Bitters

- Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice and water and let chill while making the drink.
- In a cocktail shaker or mixing glass, add the rye, syrup and both bitters. Add ice and stir for at least 30 seconds.
- Empty the old-fashioned glass and then add the absinthe to the glass. Swirl the absinthe around in the glass, coating all sides and then dump out the extra absinthe.
- Strain the ingredients from the cocktail shaker into the glass.
- Twist the lemon peel over the cocktail to express the lemon oils into the drink. Rub the peel around the rim and then drop it into the glass.
