Self-Starter Cocktail

1 oz Gin
34 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano (original calls for Kina Lillet)
14 oz Apricot liqueur
2 ds Absinthe
Stir, strain, up.
The Trader Vic's ratios are slightly different: . Erik Ellestad recommends apricot eau de vie in place of the liqueur.

I merged the existing "Self-Starter" into this. I posted this first version, but it does have as good attribution, and incorrectly had twice the gin (2 oz).
