Absinthe Curacao Cocktail, anyone? May we suggest a real curacao from Curacao, the wonderfully authentic Curacao of Curacao, which comes in a multitude of colors. It's the only blue curacao that is worth drinking, and well worth questing for. In this cocktail, you'll want to use the clear one, or, failing that, at least Cointreau. As spring approaches us here at In Absinthia, this cocktail will prove to be very refreshing.
Absinthe Curacao Cocktail
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. orange juice
- 0.5 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz absinthe
Shake with ice, then strain into ice chip filled absinthe glass. Garnish with orange slice.
An interesting sounding cocktail we have come across from the Cocktation blog, this variation on the classic absinthe frappe sounds very interesting. And we haven't yet gotten our hands on a bottle of the newly resurrected Crème Yvette, although it was featured in the Sept/Oct 2009 issue of the indespensible Imbibe magazine (article here). But we will keep this in mind when we do get a bottle here at In Absinthia manor!
- 2 oz. blanche absinthe
- 1 oz. Crème Yvette
- 4 oz. ice cold water
Shake and strain into 2 ice filled absinthe glasses.
