3/4 ounce vanilla syrup
3/4 ounce fresh juice from 1 to 2 limes
1/4 ounce Galliano

For the vanilla syrup: Split and scoop the vanilla bean pod lengthwise. Bring water to a boil, add sugar and vanilla bean. Stir well, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool completely, then strain out solids and keep sealed up to 1 week.

For the cocktail: combine the gin, aquavit, vanilla syrup, lime juice, Galliano, and absinthe in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake 15 seconds, until well chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and serve.
