Best Spooky Cocktails
Ready for a drink so potent it can raise the dead?
Okay, so it might not be that serious, but this favorite first appeared in Harry Craddock's Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930. Although most folks today enjoy this cocktail after dark, Craddock recommended imbibing before 11 a.m. or whenever a little energy boost was needed.
3/4 oz. gin
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. Lillet Blanc
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 dash absinthe
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
