Couple of recent keepers, both nicely balanced:

 

Adelphi Cocktail

  • 1 oz Rye
  • 1 oz Cognac
  • 1 oz Sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
  • 3 ds Absinthe (I used a barspoon)
  • 2 ds Bitters, Angostura

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.

 

Inventor Frederic Yarm described this as a Saratoga with the "improved" treatment. Also brings to mind faves like the Sazerac and Red Hook. Some very verbose labels on these ingredients!

Texting and Scones

  • 1 oz Cynar
  • 1 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
  • 1 oz Becherovka
  • 1 ds Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
  • 1 bsp Jamaican rum, Smith & Cross

Stir/strain/rocks/lemon twist ( I used orange)

 

Unsure if I was supposed to float the rum--I stirred it in. This was a tasty autumnal drink. Flavors akin to boozier sippers but lighter octane.
