So I was watching one of my favorite movies of all time, with one of the sexiest, most debonair actors of all time, when it hit me: surely someone, somewhere has paid alcoholic tribute to this classic film.
And they have!!
Arsenic and Old Lace
- 1 ½ oz Gin
- ½ oz Absinthe (the fake stuff is fine)
- ¼ oz. Crème de Violette
- ¼ oz. Dry Vermouth
Pour ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, stirring or swirling until mixed. Strain into a champagne saucer or martini glass. Garnish with a twirl of lemon.
It has a lovely opalescent color, and not as sweet as y’all would think. Now back to my insanity. It’s galloping at breakneck speed, and I still have shopping to do
