Review:

The absinthe cocktail meets the absinthe sour with lime juice added to the holy trinity of absinthe, sugar and water.

History:

Adapted from the first recipe in a 1932 pocket cocktail book called The Green Cocktail Book by "Jimmy". I've respected the original proportions with, as Jimmy says, "sugar to taste." Hence, I'd advise 10ml to 12.5ml sugar depending on your limes and palate.

ABSINTHE
1 part Absinthe
1 part Lime Juice
3 parts Water
1 dash Angostura Bitters per cocktail
Sugar to taste.
