Attention Cocktail Recipe


Attention Cocktail

Ethereal in color and in taste, this handsome cocktail does indeed attract attention. This adaptation of the Prohibition-era classic is a favorite of Seattle barman Jamie Boudreau.


  • 2 ounces dry gin
  • ¼ ounce absinthe
  • ¼ ounce dry vermouth
  • ¼ ounce crème de violette
  • 2 dashes orage bitters
  • Lemon peel, for garnish


Stir the ingredients with ice to chill.

Strain into a steamed glass.

Twist with a swath of lemon peel over the drink and place it in the glass.
