Down for the Count (Negroni x Remember the Maine)

A Remember the Maine - Negroni mashup of sorts.
1 oz Gin
1 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
12 oz Cherry Liqueur, Cherry Heering
12 oz Campari
1 ds Absinthe
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, fill with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
I was inspired by the Canon Cocktail Books's Remember the Maine riff called the Remember the Alamo that utilized Punt e Mes instead of sweet vermouth. Originally, I wanted to merge both Cherry Heering drinks with a Boulevardier, but gin won out since I could come up with a name. Here, I paid homage both to Count Camillo Negroni and to sinking ships.
