This is probably a well-known one. It was my first taste of absinthe, just a couple of months ago. I went to an "inter-active" play in NY, "Sleep No More," and before embarking on the mysterious journey around the "hotel" I was sitting in the cocktail lounge and ordered the absinthe punch, just because it seemed to suit the atmosphere. It was DELICIOUS, and I was hooked. I found the recipe on the web, and I'm wondering if it goes by a name other than "absinthe punch."
one part absinthe
one part lime juice
one part simple syrup
four parts water
add ice and very thin slices of cucumber
Depending on the brand of absinthe, I sometimes use less syrup, less lime, and less water.
