Catalina Cocktail #2

Did you know that a vodka soda with a splash of cranberry was called a Catalina cocktail? I didn't either, and to think I used to get persnippity that people asking for vodka crans with a lime were technically asking for a cape cod.

So night before last I got to work and the first three seated asked me to make a drink that had St. Germain and Absinthe. I was happy about the following mix. Two ounces of gin, a quarter ounce of St. Germain, Creme de Violet, and lemon shaken and poured into an absinthe rinsed glass. I told them they needed to name it and they dubbed it the Catalina.
