Austin bartender Adam Bryan reaches for his city’s own Treaty Oak rum for this herbal stunner, but any good white rum will do.

2 oz. white rum
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. St. Germain liqueur
1/2 oz. absinthe
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: lemon twist and skewered cherry

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a coupe. Garnish.
