Absinthe and gin delicately lead this subtle cherry-flavoured cocktail. Bitter liqueur adds more colour than flavour, while pink grapefruit freshens.
Adapted from a recipe created by Scott Diaz in Seattle, Washington State, USA.
The phrase "absence makes the heart grow fonder" is first attributed to English poet Ernest Dowson (1867-1900) as part of a February 1899 letter to Arthur Moore. However, it was another poet, Thomas Haynes Bayly, who popularised the phrase in his poem Isle of Beauty published in his two-volume 1844 Songs, Ballads, and Other Poems.
What would not I give to wanderThomas Haynes Bayly
Where my old companions dwell?
Absence makes the heart grow fonder;
Isle of Beauty, fare thee well!
Sadly, Bayly died 10 years before the poem was published.
