Copper Gimlet

A twist on the traditional gin gimlet, the Copper Gimlet uses vodka and absinthe

The classic gimlet is made with gin, but this Southern California spin calls for vodka, vanilla simple syrup and absinthe.

2 ounces Absolut Elyx vodka
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce vanilla simple syrup (see directions below)
1/2 ounce Pernod absinthe
1 lime wheel, for garnish

Place the Absolut Elyx vodka, fresh lime juice, vanilla simple syrup and Pernod absinthe in a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel, floated.

Vanilla Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Combine the sugar and water in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve. The liquid will be grainy, then cloudy, and is ready when it is completely clear. Turn off the heat, add the vanilla and let sit for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain and store in an airtight container. It can be refrigerated for up to one month.
