Bohemian-Style Absinthe Cocktail

absinthe cocktail_mardi gras

Our Fat Tuesday might not be spent catching beads from a float, but we’ve found one way to get into the Mardi Gras’ spirit with this absinthe cocktail –  a favorite at the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans!

Bar supplies:

  • Absinthe spoon or small strainer
  • Martini glass or glassware of your choice
  • Lighter
IngredientAmount
Absinthe2 ounces
Water4 ounces or to taste
Sugar cube1

Preparation:

Place sugar cube on an absinthe spoon or in small strainer set over a glass. Pour absinthe over sugar cube into the glass. Light the sugar cube on fire and allow sugar to caramelize for 10 to 15 seconds. Slowly pour water over sugar cube until it dissolves and the drink begins to turn opaque. Stir to combine and laissez les bons temps rouler!
