Death at the Savoy

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

“Adding a splash of sparkling wine is one of the most reliable of cocktail augmentations,” says John deBary. “Here it creates something of a love child between the classic Corpse Reviver No. 2 and a Death in the Afternoon” (absinthe and Champagne with a lemon twist).

  1. 1/4 ounce absinthe
  2. Ice
  3. 3/4 ounce London dry gin
  4. 3/4 ounce triple sec
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  6. 1 ounce chilled sparkling wine
  7. 1 lemon twist, for garnish
  1. Rinse a chilled coupe with the absinthe and pour out the excess. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, triple sec and lemon juice and shake well. Strain into the prepared glass, top with the wine and garnish with the twist.
