How to make:
POUR absinthe into ice-filled glass, TOP with water and leave to stand. Separately THROW other ingredients with ice. DISCARD contents of glass (absinthe, water and ice) and STRAIN thrown drink into absinthe-coated glass.
Lemon zest twist (discarded)
If you are concerned about chucking expensive absinthe down the drain then consider straining into a shot glass and serve on the side. The five to one proportion used to rinse the glass produces a tasty chaser.
