“At Dead Rabbit, which is named after a legendary Irish gang that existed in Lower Manhattan in the 1850s, we celebrate ingredients that were prevalent at the time. One of those is absinthe. This drink is a riff on Hemingway’s Death in the Afternoon, and the recipe you see here is our reincarnation of the one that appears in Daly’s Bartenders’ Encyclopedia, written in 1903. Parfait amour is basically a more complex orange curaçao. The sweetness of that and the celery cordial combine with the anise flavor of the absinthe, and it’s all balanced out by champagne. Even though I’m partial to Irish whiskey, it’s one of my favorite drinks on the menu.”
