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


Adapted from the first recipe in a 1932 pocket cocktail book called The Green Cocktail Book by "Jimmy". We've respected the original proportions of 1 part Absinthe, 1 part lime juice, 3 parts water and 1 dash of Angostura bitters" with, as Jimmy says, "sugar to taste." Hence, we'd advise 10ml to 12.5ml sugar depending on your limes and palate.
