Louisiane and Maine

Louisiane and Maine

  • 2.0 oz. Rye
  • 0.5 oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • 0.25 oz. Benedictine
  • 0.25 oz. Cherry Heering
  • dash of Peychaud’s bitters
  • dash of Angostura bitters
  • dash of absinthe

Stir with ice and strain into glass.

Meld of two of my favorite (and similar) drinks, Remember the Maine and A La Louisiane cocktails, which only differ by using either Benedictine or Cherry Heering. Here I’ve used both, and lessened the sweet vermouth.

The name, then, is obvious, though for me it sounds like an intersection of streets, not drinks, or states. An intersection it is, so I like it. And I’ll be on that corner raising a glass.
