1 oz Gin, The Botanist
1⁄2 oz Tawny port
1⁄4 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
1⁄4 oz Absinthe, Kübler
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
2 bsp Fine sugar (vanilla)

Muddle the raspberries in the shaker with the sugar. Shake all ingredients except bitters without ice. Give it another shake with ice. Strain into a coupé. Garnish with a couple drops of bitters.

I think sweetness could be tweaked to taste. Maybe slightly more or less sugar.


Vanilla sugar: I split half a vanilla bean and put it in to 8 ounces of superfine sugar and let it sit for a week or so (honestly, I don't take the vanilla out).
