Before it called for rye whiskey, the New Orleans classic was made with cognac.
Rinse a chilled Old Fashioned glass with the absinthe, fill with crushed ice and set aside.
Add the remaining ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
Discard the ice and any excess absinthe from the prepared glass and strain the drink into it.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
