Situationship From Cardinal Atlanta

For fans of Jamaican rum, sherry and spice. 

Fruit, funk, and spice converge in this fragrant cocktail. Th. Kramers Aromatique is a bitter liqueur from Germany, but Fernet-Branca works as a substitute.


  • ¾ oz. Jamaican rum
  • ¾ oz. oloroso sherry
  • ¾ oz. banana liqueur
  • ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz. Th. Kramers Aromatique (or substitute with Fernet-Branca)
  • 5 drops black-pepper tincture
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:absinthe


Shake all of the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled glass. Finish with 3 sprays of absinthe (alternately, drip several drops of absinthe on top of the drink).

Black-Pepper Tincture: Combine 35 grams of fresh-ground black pepper with 200 ml. of high-proof neutral grain spirits in a jar. Seal, then store in a cool place, shaking daily for 4 weeks. Strain through a coffee filter and bottle for use; keeps indefinitely, but the flavor may fade over time.
