1 3⁄4 oz Genever
1⁄2 oz Cardamaro
2 ds Absinthe (I used 1/2 bsp (1/16th oz))
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.


I was inspired by the bottle of Cardamaro, and I was inspired to create this Genever Manhattan riff based off of what would work well with that amaro. For a name, I dubbed this one after a Richard Hell and the Voidoids song after thinking about how I was swapping around ingredient pairings from other recipes to assemble this one.

  • Made with 4 drops of absinthe, and one drop of lemon bitters, since I was out of lemons. Also used scant 1/4 oz maraschino since I think m. is kind of a bully. — ★★★★★
