Absinthe + soda

Recommended Posts

I've done it. As with everything involving personal tastes, it's not for everyone. I finished the glass but haven't revisited that particular mix in quite awhile. Give it a go and see what you think. :thumbup:

 

Cheers!

Some cocktails contain soda and absinthe. Recently I have tried the "1920s Pick Me Up" and "Sea-Fizz", out of the Savoy book. The former being somewhat disgusting, the latter being somewhat enjoyable.

 

I think the key to using absinthe in cocktails as a primary ingrediant, or with soda, is to use a lightly flavored and/or anise-heavy choice. Herbsaint and Absente tend to work better than herb-heavy true-absinthes. I find that I love Vieux Carre in a traditional drip, but it is wretched in most cocktails I have tried (although it is great in a Sazerac)
