The Morning Glory is a classic cocktail with attitude. This recipe is adapted from the 1887 edition of Jerry Thomas' Bar-Tenders Guide in which sugar syrup replaces gum syrup and the brandy becomes more specific with Cognac.

The cocktail is a wonderful mix of flavors that span the spectrum but can easily become unbalanced if too much of one ingredient is used, especially if there is an overload of absinthe, so measuring is key.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice.

  2. Top with club soda.

  3. Twist a lemon peel over the glass and drop it into the drink.
