Perverted by Language

A quirky drink that I did as a tribute right after Mark E. Smith of The Fall passed away in early 2018.
1 12 oz Gin (Dry or London Dry)
12 oz Sloe gin
12 oz Sweet vermouth
12 oz Cynar
1 rinse Absinthe (Rinse of glass)
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe pre-rinsed with absinthe, and garnish with a lemon twist (or strain into a rocks glass rinsed with absinthe, and garnish with lemon oil from a twist.)
I was inspired by the great combination of sloe gin and Cynar that appears in Phil Ward's Lipspin and Colin Shearn's Transatlantic Giant. I created this as a tribute to Mark E. Smith of The Fall right after he passed away, and I named it after their 1983 album.

  • Absinthe rinse loomed large. Intriguing flavor combo underneath that. — ☆☆☆☆
