Isn’t she gorgeous?
My latest bottle of absinthe. It’s a mild, lovely recipe; it contains a bit less alcohol by volume than many other absinthes.
At a 4 parts water : 1 part Swiss La Bleue, I had to add more absinthe to tone down the sweetness of the single sugar cube I used. This could certainly be sipped without sugar at all.
I managed to muck up the louche a bit here, but normally this absinthe creates a lovely milky white beverage. Note: don’t chuck an ice cube in there if you want it to turn out right; it affects the louche in an unappealing way.
