2 oz cognac or rye whiskey
¼-½ oz Small Hand Foods Gum Syrup
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
absinthe to rinse

Swirl a chilled rocks glass with absinthe and discard excess. Stir remaining ingredients together over ice and strain into the absinthe-rinsed glass. Garnish with lemon peel, twisted over the glass, and either discarded or left in glass.
