  • 1 ounces (2 tablespoons) sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons)  Benedictine
  • 1 teaspoon absinthe
  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • For the garnish: Luxardo cherries


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail mixing glass (or any other type of glass). Fill the mixing glass with 1 handful ice and stir continuously for 30 seconds until very cold.
  2. Strain the drink into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
