Apéritif d'Absinthe: A Refreshing and Bittersweet Cocktail

Apéritif d'Absinthe is a classic cocktail that combines the bold and complex flavors of absinthe with the freshness of citrus and the sweetness of sugar. It is a perfect choice for those who enjoy a refreshing and bittersweet drink.

To make an Apéritif d'Absinthe, you will need a bottle of absinthe, a lemon or lime, sugar cubes, and ice cubes. Start by preparing a chilled martini glass by placing it in the refrigerator or filling it with ice water for a few minutes.

Next, take a sugar cube and place it on a spoon or an absinthe spoon if you have one. Slowly pour a small amount of absinthe over the sugar cube to dissolve it. Some people prefer to drip the absinthe over a sugar cube using a sugar cube holder, but it is not necessary.

Once the sugar cube is dissolved, squeeze the juice of a lemon or lime into a glass. Add a generous amount of ice cubes and pour the absinthe over the ice. Stir gently to combine the ingredients.

The Apéritif d'Absinthe is now ready to be enjoyed. The cocktail has a pale green color and a refreshing taste with a hint of bitterness from the absinthe. It is a great choice for a pre-dinner drink or a hot summer day.

Remember to drink responsibly and savor the unique flavors of this classic cocktail. Cheers!

Best served in a Parfait Glass.
