Review:

Best described as an energy drink on steroids - equal parts absinthe, coffee liqueur and espresso. However, unlike most caffeine-laden energy drinks the Flying Frenchman is very tasty.

History:

Adapted from a drink created in 2014 for La Fée Parisienne by Andy Mil at the London Cocktail Club. Andy's recipe originally called for Patron XO Café and an additional 15ml of sugar syrup.
