1 1⁄2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Absinthe
1⁄4 oz Blanco tequila
1⁄4 oz Agave syrup

Add everything to an ice filled shaker and then shake like you want the minions of hell to break loose from their fiery (icy) prisons. Double strain into a coupe.

<br />The instructions need to be clarified on two matters: (1) The instructions say to put all of the ingredients, save for the agave syrup, into a glass mixer and then vigorously shake it. I think if the ingredients are to be vigorously shaken, then they should be put into a metal shaker, not a mixing glass. This will prevent the escape of the minions from Hell! (2) More importantly, what is to be done with the agave syrup that was put into a separate container? The only thing I could come up with is that the agave syrup is to be carefully floated atop of the other ingredients after they have been vigorously shaken. Can anyone clarify what is to be done with the agave syrup? I think the instructions should be rewritten to clarify both issues, but mostly to clarify issue number two, regarding the agave syrup. And I agree that switching the amounts of absinthe and tequila makes a better drink.
