Cocktail à la Louisiane


Had this at Clive's and liked it.  I swear George used Bourbon and not rye.
This didn't taste as good.
3/4 ounce rye whiskey
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
3/4 ounce Benedictine
3 to 4 dashes Peychaud's bitters
3 to 4 dashes absinthe or a substitute (Herbsaint, Pernod, Ricard, or other pastis)
I used Wodford Reserve but it seemed to overpower the drink.  I also used an eyedropper for the absinthe but alas I think I got more than 3 drops.  Still a nice drink.  I think they also used Antica Formula which I have but didn't want to open as I don't have room in my fridge (don't want it to go bad)
