POUR absinthe into ice-filled glass. TOP with chilled water and set to one side. Separately, SHAKE other ingredients with ice. DISCARD contents of glass (absinthe, water and ice) and strain drink into empty absinthe-coated glass.
Orange zest twist (discarded)
Reminiscent of a Sazerac but with gin and triple sec. Delicate, remarkably fruity and very sippable.
