  • 3 dashes Orange Bitters

  • 1.5 oz Sloe Gin*

  • 1.5 oz Dry Vermouth

  • Barspoon Kirschwasser or Luxardo Maraschino*

  • Absinthe Rinse


Chill a Nick & Nora glass. Combine all ingredients except absinthe in a Mixing Glass, add ice and STIR. Rinse or mist glass with absinthe. Strain cocktail into absinthe rinsed glass. Express an orange twist over the glass and discard.


*Sloe Gin: Gin that has been infused with sloe berries (a type of plum). We recommend a German Style: Monkey 47 or Elephant. Hayman’s, Plymouth, Sipsmith, and Spirit Works are all available in the US and delicious!


*Kirschwasser: Kirsch is a clear cherry brandy that has a similar bitterness to maraschino, both include the cherry pits in production. 


Please store your vermouth in the refrigerator.
