Bad Romance

LIQUOR: , , , ,

We were singing the praises of this cocktail even before Lady Gaga told us about her loss at love. The mash up of exciting flavors keeps us coming back for more: aquavit (anise), Big O (ginger and spice), dry vermouth (a little herbal funk), blanco tequila (vegetal heat), Peychaud’s (citrus), and absinthe (a little more herbaceous-ness). A complex but pleasing symphony of flavors sure to please the discerning palate winter or summer.



  • 1 oz aquavit
  • ¾ oz Big O Ginger Liqueur
  • ¾ oz dry vermouth
  • ½ oz blanco tequila
  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 5 drops Absinthe


  1. Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice.
  2. Strain into a coupe and garnish with an orange twist
