Why have a Millionaire when you can stretch to a Billionaire? A suitably luxuriant whiskey sour with absinthe, aromatic bitters and mint.
Adapted from a recipe created circa 2011 by Dushan Zarić and Jason Kosmas at Employees Only in Manhattan, New York City, USA. The original was quite different and was based on Wild Turkey Rare Breed Bourbon without the rye and (in place of absinthe, bitters and mint) called for Employee Only's housemade 'Absinthe Bitters', a blend of absinthe, Green Chartreuse, Peychaud's bitters, Angostura bitters and Fee Brothers Mint bitters.
