Black Rose

What was my first impression of this drink?  I thought it tasted a bit like a poorly made Manhattan.  But, after I added a splash of Absinthe it was remarkably more interesting.

makes 2

4-5 shots Maker’s Mark
3-4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
splash Grenadine
splash Absinthe
wedge or thin peel of lemon

In a bar glass filled with ice, combine all ingredients.  Stir.  Strain into two old-fashioned  glasses filled with fresh ice.  Garnish with a lemon peel or wedge, if desired.
