Original Cocktail: The Green Faerie's Gimlet

This little number was  one of the most popular cocktails on the menu at Revival and became a permanent member of the family. A little herbaceous with just a touch of absinthe. Tart and refreshing, and just complex enough to keep you from crushing it too hard and getting all sorts of gin-hungover.




-Green Faerie's Gimlet-


1.75 oz London Dry gin
.25 oz Clear Creek Douglas Fir eau de vie
.75 oz fresh lime
light .5 oz simple syrup
2 generous dashes Absinthe*

Shake it all up, double strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.


*Pro-tip: Put some absinthe in a dropper or bitters bottle. I suggest buying a few of those super cheap oil and vinegar shakers that just cost a few bucks for all of your strongly flavored ingredients.
