Silvered Mirror

Looking for the forest...
1 12ozGin, Hendrick's
1ozLime juice
12ozGreen Chartreuse
12ozSimple syrup
2dsBitters (Homemade - Forest Floor Bitters*)
14ozAbsinthe, Germain-Robin
In a shaker, add first five ingredients over ice and shake. Strain into glass, drip absinthe into cocktail so that it louches.
Sorry about the impossible to find bitters - I made them, and they're pretty good for a first try, and yes, they taste like forest floor. Boker's is a fair substitute, but it has more coffee aroma and flavor.
