Well-balanced with zesty lemon and absinthe just shining through. We've cheekily added the merest dash of sugar but depending on your personal tastes, citrus juice and triple sec you may want to omit this.
Harry originally stipulated Kina Lillet - as this is no longer available we've used Lillet Blanc but you can also use dry vermouth or preferably a kina aromatised-wine.
