Based on one of my favorite all time cocktails the Boulevardier, I concocted the Blackberry Bombardier as a riff on this famous classic.

  • 1 1/2 oz Rye
  • 3/4 oz Campari
  • 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 dashes Absinthe
  • 1 Blackberry

Muddle the blackberry, add the other ingredients, shake and double strain into a coupe or over a big cube. Careful not to overdo the Absinthe, I keep mine in a dropper bottle and I do about 1.5 dropper fulls. I often serve this up but decided to put it over a big cube for the photo. Garnish with a lemon peel.
