Absinthe Frappe | Cocktail Party

Absinthe Frappe

Absinthe has never been so refreshing as here in this Absinthe Frappe, a crisp, cool highball that traces its roots at least back to the late 1800s. Frappe in this context means vigorously shaken, rather than blended (although you can blend it, if that’s your preference).

Absinthe and other anise liqueurs vary greatly in sweetness; we like to start with the amount of simple syrup listed here and increase as needed.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you’d prefer to serve this drink blended, simply add all the ingredients to a blender, along with a heaping cupful of ice. Blend until smooth.

Otherwise, gently muddle the mint leaves at the bottom of a shaker. Add absinthe, simple syrup and ice. Shake vigorously for up to a minute. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with sparkling water.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
