SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

Comment:

Well-balanced with zesty lemon and absinthe just shinning above other ingredients.

Harry originally stipulated Kina Lillet - as this is no longer available we've used Lillet Blanc but you can also use dry vermouth or Americano Bianco.

Variant:

Those who find the classic equal parts Corpse Reviver No.2 a dad too sour should try this version, courtesy of Domino’s Club, Leeds, England. 25ml dry gin; 25ml triple sec; 25ml Lillet Blanc; 20ml lemon juice; 1 dash absinthe.
