Foghorn Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

For his boozy update of the Corpse Reviver No. 2, mixologist Ryan Fitzgerald changed the proportions and replaced the usual Lillet with Cocchi Americano—a fortified, slightly bitter aperitif wine. Absinthe gives the drink an opalescence reminiscent of San Francisco's fog.
