The Obituary is an intriguing spin on a gin martini, probably getting its morbid name from the inclusion of absinthe (though a pastis like Pernod can be substituted). The result is a completely new drink; the introduction of an anise-y flavor highlights the aromatics already present in both gin and vermouth.
