05/27/2016 , 2m, 41s

The stiff cocktail comes from 1930 as one in a family of hair of the dog cocktails. It's good for whatever might be ailing you. Enjoy it in moderation.

Note on the Lillet Blanc vs. Cocchi Americano, the former is sweeter and the latter is more bitter. So choose the one that appeals to your taste. Both are generally available.

  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. Cocchi American or Lillet Blanc, as preferred
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 dash absinthe

Place all components in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel or cherry.
