Mix ingredients with ice and stir till blended.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Don't make the mistake I almost did by not paying attention and pour 2 oz. of absinthe into my glass before realizing that it didn't smell like gin. That could have been deadly. One of these cocktails was enough to last me through the evening and I'm not sure I can blame it on the green fairy, but I lay awake with a fever and chills all night. It was as if the green fairy was trying to pull my soul from my body. Don't let that stop you though. I survived and it was delicious.
