Blackthorn

November 20, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse

Blackthorn 
3/4 oz. Noilly Prat
3/4 oz. Irish whiskey
Dash anisette
Dash Angostura bitters

Stir over ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass

Jameson Irish whiskey, Dolin dry vermouth, Mythe absinthe schpritz. Noilly Prat is an extra dry French vermouth, and in it’s absence at the bar, I think the Dolin dry was a fine substitute. This was a good cocktail! Kind of like a Sazerac with a lot less bite; the Irish whiskey lent it’s signature softness. Nice herbals with a very slight fruit note.
