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.
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.
