Cocktail Wednesdays: Morning Cocktail

Morning Cocktail

Two weeks ago, Scott chose the Morning Cocktail from David Wondrich's Imbibe.  I'm not sure what the name is from, since it certainly seems to be a fierce tipple for the A.M.

Morning Cocktail

1 oz Brandy
1 oz Rye Whiskey
1 oz Absinthe
2 ds Angostura Bitters
Lemon wedge as garnish

Stir over ice, strain into a claret glass and serve with a 1/4 slice of lemon.

The verdict: This one is definitely an absinthe cocktail, which overwhelms the other flavors.  They do give a warmth to the cocktail, but are not balanced in flavor the way that the equal parts might imply.
