Now Drinking: Sleepy Hollow

Been meaning to try this cocktail for a year or more now...  Just tried it out for the first time last night.  Pretty good! Smokey and spicy (and boozy).  Definitely my kind of cocktail.

¼ ounce absinthe
2 ounces mezcal
1 ounce St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Rosemary sprig, for garnish

Pour absinthe into a rocks glass; swirl to coat, and discard liqueur.

Fill a stirring glass with ice, then add mezcal, St. Elizabeth, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters. Strain cocktail into a rocks glass over ice. Light rosemary with a lighter or culinary torch until smoking and place it in the glass. Serve immediately.


  1. I can't imagine how excited I'd be seeing this drink arrive with smoking rosemary. haha...sounds amazing.

    1. Haha, I'd have to restrain myself from giddily clapping my hands like a 2 year old being handed ice cream. And it's great because not only is the presentation cool, but that smoky/burnt/rosemary aroma really gives a little something extra to the drink.
