Choke Me Like You Love Me

2 oz Rye
12 oz Cynar
12 oz Pedro Ximénez Sherry
1 ds Absinthe
Stir, strain, up or old fashioned with no rock, optional grapefruit or lemon twist, expressed and discarded.
A split base of rye and brandy works well too.

  • Rufus is a fan. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • You can achieve a flavor like this without using sherry, but I like drinks in this style. Spicy whiskey manhattan with some herbal/fruity undertones. Nicely done. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with 1/2 Torres 5 year brandy and worked pretty well — ☆☆☆
  • Worth trying again to see if it grows on me. — ☆☆☆
