After being absolutely enamored with Espirit Edouard, and seeing the Elixir Combier at my go-to liquor store, I decided to give it a try. The ingredients really intrigued me- cardamom, saffron, myrrh. I mean... myrrh, like the stuff they brought baby Jesus? Who does that???
Upon tasting it, I was quite glad I gave it a try. Clearly it's more of a sweet desert drink. I've found that 1-2 ounces poured over 3-4 ice cubes is a nice way to savor it. The only thing I don't understand is why my store was selling it for $25, which seems to be half the price that it sells for in Europe where it comes from. I'm not complaining of course, I just don't get it!?!
So, anyone else enjoy the Elixir? Any favorite ways to "prepare" it?
[Edit: I'm new to the forum, and just set my avatar pic as an old EC poster. Before anyone accuses me of being a distributor for them or something, it's really more just because I like the little bearded guy, and wanted to have something different than an old absinthe poster! I'm not obsessed with the Elixir, I promise!
Actually, the fact I misspelled "Elixir" in the topic title and don't know how to fix it should probably be proof of that. ]
