Around the beginning of the twentieth century, America invented the ultimate cocktail: the martini. Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop made a special version with an added splash of absinthe and called it the Obituary Cocktail.
- 4 jiggers dry gin
- 1/2 jigger dry vermouth
- 1/2 jigger Pernod (a legal absinthe substitute)
Chill in a shaker and strain.
