About this Cocktail

Note from mixologist Bruce Rodgers (Tradition): "This cocktail is firmly rooted in the classics but shows off some of my favorite combinations quite well. The combination of Maraschino liquor, absinthe, and aromatic bitters is a great addition to almost any cocktail, and it shows very well against the orange quality of the Cointreau. Try it in any Cointreau cocktail, from a Sidecar to a White Lady to your own concoctions."


  • 1½ oz Cointreau
  • ¾ oz Cocchi Americano
  • 1 bar spoon Luxardo Maraschino
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz soda
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 dashes absinthe (I used Kubler)
  • Garnish: lime wheel and brandied cherry

Combine all in a shaker tin, fill three-quarters with crushed ice, shake gently, and pour all into a chimney glass. Garnish with a lime wheel and a brandied cherry.
