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.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 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.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
