|1/4 fl oz||La Fee Parisienne absinthe|
|5/12 fl oz||Giffard Sugar Cane Syrup|
|5/12 fl oz||Lime juice (freshly squeezed)|
|4 fl oz||Brut Champagne|
Delicately sweetened lime and champagne with faint notes of aniseed from the absinthe.
A lime influenced riff on Ernest Hemingway's classic Death in the Afternoon. Another version of this cocktail, apparently created at Cantineros' Club, the famous Cuban bar school, calls for a shot of Pernod anis to be poured into a chilled glass and then topped with champagne.
