International Cocktail

This was a rich, full-bodied cocktail that took me a long time to finish. I had to put it in the freezer to save for later. That may be because 2 ounces of cognac is a hefty pour or it might be because I don't like absinthe very much. Still, it seemed in perfect proportions (which is what the vodka is intended to preserve so as not to be overly flavorful like the Four Score) and it was mighty strong to boot.
  • 2 oz. brandy or cognac (Corvoissier V.S. pictured)
  • 1/2 oz. absinthe 
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 2 tsp. vodka
Combine all ingredients in a shaker full of ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
