This classic cocktail puts vermouth in the starring role, adding Bénédictine and absinthe for delicious complexity. If it’s a bit too sweet for your liking, try dialing back the Bénédictine a little.
2 oz. dry vermouth
1 oz. Bénédictine
3 dashes absinthe
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: orange twist
Stir ingredients with ice in a mixing glass untill chilled. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
