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).
- 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.
