Fourth Degree

A "sweet martini"
2 oz Gin, Plymouth
1 oz Sweet vermouth, Noilly Prat
1 ds Absinthe
1 twst Lemon peel (as garnish)
Stir, strain, lemon twist garnish.
The OP had 2 dashes of orange bitters instead of the absinthe, no lemon twist, an ice ball and olives (see picture). The Savoy calls for 1/3 ea gin, French and Italian vermouth and 4 dashes of absinthe.

  • Used a different recipe * 3/4 oz Gin * 3/4 oz sweet vermouth * 3/4 oz dry vermouth * 1tsp of absinthe It was okay, nice finish, but the taste seemed a little conflicted and unbalanced. — ☆☆

Savoy and other sources call

Savoy and other sources call for a mix of sweet and dry vermouths in their Fourth Degrees, and in much more vermouth-heavy proportions than these.
