Serve up with an orange twist.
Adjust Benedictine depending on preferred sweetness
This is a variation of the Chrysanthemum Cocktail, first published in 1916 in Hugo Ensslin's "Recipes for Mixed Drinks". Ensslin uses equal parts vermouth and Benedictine and 2-3 dashes of absinthe.

- 3/4 Benedictine worked well, and light on the absinthe is good. Light, approachable, good.
- I like with 3/4 Benedictine.
- 1/3/19: From Cocktail Codex, made with 2.5 oz dry vermouth, 0.5 oz Benedictine, 1 tsp absinthe, orange twist. Less or no absinthe might be worth trying.
- Interesting! Made 2:1 instead of the PDT version. ¼ Absinthe will overpower the drink
- Found this much too sweet, even with benedictine reduced. Was improved by adding some Peychaud bitters, but wouldn't make it again.
