Triple sec sweetens dry gin with zesty orange while aromatised wine adds vinous notes. However, it's absinthe that sets this Martini-style cocktail apart. According to bartending convention, this cocktail should be stirred but I much prefer it shaken as when first served this gives the Foghorn a cloudiness that befits its name.
A riff on the Corpse Reviver No. 2 created in the Noughties by Ryan Fitzgerald in San Francisco, USA. Absinthe is said to "give the drink an opalescence reminiscent of San Francisco's fog", hence this cocktail's name.
