Fall Cocktail: Lure of the Land

 By: The Food Hunter

Sprouting from a carousel of spicy and herbal notes, Lure of the Land is a soothing, warm, and local (French)-inspired drink that can set the mood for all things fall.  

Lure of the Land is an explosion of aromas: anise, and mint come into this cocktail from the French Grande Absente absinthe; juniper, sweet almond, thyme, angelica, and iris from the Provencal Gin XII, added with a touch of cinnamon, and nutmeg from Amaro Cocchi. 



  • .25 oz of Grande Absente
  • 1.5 oz XII Dry Gin
  • 0.5 oz Cocchi Americano
  • 0.25 oz Leopold Brothers NY Sour Apple Liqueur
  • 0.25 oz Amontillado Sherry
  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice
  • 0.25 oz Honey Syrup (2 parts honey:1 part water)
  • Dash Peychaud’s Bitters

Rinse a cocktail coupe or martini glass with .25 oz of Grande Absente 69, discard excess and set glass aside. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir. Strain up into Absente-rinsed glass. Garnish with orange ribbon and small sprig of mint.
