INGREDIENTS

1/2 ounce Pacifique Absinthe
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
sparkling wine to top

DIRECTIONS

Assemble ingredients in order given in a tall glass.

 

Just as Tinkerbell was a mischievous green clad fairy, absinthe is known to be a mischievous green-hued liqueur. Very much flavored with anise (black licorice) and often associated with artists and those in pursuit of a different perspective; absinthe’s wormwood content doesn’t necessarily act as a psychotropic as legend would have it. Instead it simply provides a pleasant backbone to your new favorite springtime sipper.
