AKA:

Gloom Raiser

Review:

Grenadine adds a pink-red hue but absinthe ensures this Martini remains dry. Nonetheless, this drink may chase your gloom (blues) away.

History:

Adapted from a recipe David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks:
"GLOOM CHASER or GLOOM RAISER Dry Martini with 2 dashes absinthe and 2 dashes grenadine to each drink. Stir. Compare the International. Another version of the Gloom Chaser consists of a Daiquiri with curaçao substituted for the sugar."
Sadly, Embury does not give a recipe for "the International" in his book.

There are approximately 160 calories in one serving of Gloom Chaser (Embury).
