Ginuary 20th: Preview.

Holy dooley, if this drink was a lady I would not want to make her angry.


  • 45ml gin
  • 15ml Cointreau
  • dash of absinthe


Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.



This classy dame comes to us from Ginuary’s hot pocket of 2014, Ted Saucier’s Bottoms Up, where I’m told it’s in honour of Peter Lawford, “motion picture star”—and member of the rat pack. What a swell guy. He must’ve been a helluva to get a drink in honour of him in print by the age of thirty… and now I feel old and unaccomplished. Great. Good way to start the week.

This drink will kick you in the teeth if you’re not looking. (Another good way to start the week…)
