I present my summer absinthe cocktail.
Crisp and refreshing. Pleasantly herbal.
la Rosée de Fée
1 ounce Le Tourment Vert absinthe*
3/4 ounce Hendricks gin
2 ounces tarragon soda**
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir. Strain into a highball glass over ice.
*Note that Le Tourment has been softened through dilution and sweetening. It does not have the same high alcohol content as most traditional absinthes. Recipe may need tweaking for stronger absinthes.
**This popular Armenian/Georgian soda is carried by most Russian grocers.
