As the name indicates the Obituary Cocktail is not a tame drink. It's the concentration of absinthe (which equals dry vermouth here) that is likely the source of the warning. That aside, it is a stellar drink that retains the opalescence of the traditional absinthe drink and one that I encourage anyone rediscovering absinthe to try. If you like any of the absinthe substitutes will do here and had been the liqueurs of choice during the green fairy's ban.
- 2 oz gin
- 1/4 oz dry vermouth
