L'amour en fuite (Love on the Run)

1 12 oz Gin, Plymouth
34 oz Lillet Blanc
14 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
1 rinse Absinthe
Instructions
Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail glass
Notes
For someone who wants a somewhat sweet cocktail. Take care to just just a rinse of absinthe, lest it overpower the other flavors.
From other users
  • Disappointing. Rather sweet and uninteresting. The flavors are subtle enough that the Absinthe rinse overshadows the other flavors. Tried adding acid (1/4 oz lemon). Didn't help much. Added 3/4 oz Campari, and it was improved — ☆☆
