AWESOME ABSINTHE COCKTAILS
I had previously written about a once-in-a-lifetime trip I had taken to the French Riviera in another post. I was happy to go into detail about the little shop I popped into that sold craft olive oils and vinegars. What I forgot to mention was I also ducked into the business nextdoor. A French absinthe bar. We grabbed a little table and enjoyed absinthe the old fashioned way: little glasses, flaming sugar cubes, and quantities slightly more than necessary for the middle of the day! If drinking absinthe almost straight up isn’t your thing, try your hand with one of these absinthe cocktails.
This vivacious absinthe, elderflower, lemon, and gin cocktail recipe will brighten your day! This is a magnificent drink made with St-Germain elderflower liqueur, triple sec, and notes of lemon juice!
Ernest Hemingway’s creation of the absinthe drink Death in the Afternoon is a must-try! This simple beverage has a black licorice taste and is effervescent. When it comes to absinthe cocktails (or just cocktails in general), you are in good hands with Hemingway.
