I picked up a bottle of absinthe just before Halloween on a lark and I was surprised at how smooth it was, both with and without water. I haven’t tried it in a cocktail, yet, but this one sounds delectable.
- 1 ½ oz. Lucid Absinthe
- ½ oz. agave nectar or honey
- 1 egg white
- Dash of rose water
- 2 oz. heavy cream
Add all ingredients to a shaker, and shake dry (i.e. with no ice). Next, fill shaker with ice and shake rigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a rose petal.
I would imagine that coconut milk would work well in this in place of the heavy cream, if you were wanting or needing to reduce the dairy. The combination of the rose water and the anise flavor of the absinthe remind me of some French candies a friend gifted me in high school. I imagine this would take me right back.
