I made myself an 'Earthquake' this weekend. undiluted Absinthe and Cognac...(not the one on the recipie section, but one I read about.)

I thought it would be horrid. It was at first, but by the third sip or so I began to develop a real taste for it.

Try it! Tain't half bad. I used Mari and Corvossier (half and half as I was too lazy to try to find the proportion.)

Also, Absinthe and tangerine juice in place of the water (add a bit of the peel crushed as well)is one of my favorite drinks ever.

A drink I made up, based on the classic Raymond Chandler gimlet (very sweet by modern standards):

Green Lady:

1/2 Absinthe
1/2 Rose's sweetened lime juice

It is very sweet, but very tasty. The lime and the anise do something very yummy to each other.

Absinthe and red wine... tried it.


Never again!

While on the subject here are some other absinthe mixed drinks not to try.

tremblement de terre (earthquake): Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's favorite mixed drink was Absinthe and Cognac.

Absinthe minuit: Absinthe and white wine

absinthe de vidangeur (scavenger absinthe): was Aristide Bruant's favorite drink, it is Absinthe and Red Wine.

A cocktail consisting of black ink and absinthe was invented by Vincent Van Goch. I would not take any drink recipies from him, on one occasion he used a quart of terpentine as a chaser.

And just in case any hedonists think about mixing absinthe and champagne - don't, it looks and tastes awful!

add some 7-up or sprite in a 1:7 or 1:5. Taste great. Each changes the flavor of absinthe abit.
