Here is an idea for a really nice cocktail that is not for the person that likes a sweet cocktail. This has a subtle sweetness up front and a pronounced tartness at the finish. The variety of flavors keep changing throughout the experience. I find it to be wonderful and the lack of the heavy sweetness makes it uniquely different and enjoyable.
The Real Bittersweet Cocktail
Put Absinthe into a rocks glass, swirl and discard. Add remaining ingredients to mixing glass filled with ice and stir. Strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with and orange zest.
