The mix of anise with crisp dry vermouth, herbal Benedictine and fresh orange produces a well-rounded cocktail that has stood the test of time. Though the origins of the name are lost, the recipe is tried and true.



  1. Add the vermouth, Benedictine and absinthe to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Squeeze the orange peel into the drink, then run the peel around the rim and use as a garnish. Drink immediately.
