|1 fl oz||Rémy Martin 1738 Cognac|
|1 fl oz||Bourbon whiskey|
|1 fl oz||St-Germain elderflower liqueur|
|3 dash||La Fée Parisienne absinthe|
Elderflower liqueur mellows and boosts floral notes in the cognac, while dashes of absinthe dries and adds a robust hint of aniseed.
Created in 2006 by yours truly at The Cabinet Room, London, England.
The name is a reference to the Parisian district of St-Germain, lying on the left bank of the River Seine, and a nod to the use of absinthe and its pre-war ban in France partly due to the belief that it induced insanity.
