I got into cocktails by randomly buying the book Absinthe Cocktails, and this is in it and one of the first cocktails I ever made. One drink makes you buy some bottles, then you buy more until you have a whole damn cabinet full. Made this again with a really assertive Spanish vermouth and less elderflower, now that I'm wise enough to know 1 oz is crazy. It's good no matter how you stir it though
