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 recipe –  a favorite at the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans! This Mardi Gras cocktail recipe serves 1.

Absinthe cocktail recipe supplies:

  • Absinthe spoon or small strainer
  • Martini glass or glassware of your choice
  • Lighter


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!
