It's good with Plymouth, even better with Bols Genever.

Must use Cocchi Americano, not Lillet Blanc.

From other users

MUST use Cocchi Americano instead of Lillet Blanc. (4 stars)
A great sour, enhanced by the absinthe rinse. I can understand the rationale behind more absinthe, to add back notes. I also garnished with a twist. (4 stars)
Interesting NYTimes piece suggests absinthe up to scant teaspoon. http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/21/case-study-cocchi-americano-waking-the-dead/
Creole Shrubb + Bonal Gentiane Quina esp. good (5 stars)
