Mauresque

Mauresque cocktail with orgeat and absinthe

This drink usually served “built” – that is, the ice is placed in the glass first, and then the ingredients are each poured on top in the order given. We like it because it’s lazy and doesn’t dirty a shaker, but in this case we’re willing to wash the extra dish to get a slightly smoother shaken drink with a really nice velvety texture. Your call.

Ingredients

Instructions

You can either build the ingredients in the order given in an ice-filled glass, or you can shake it with ice and strain into an ice-filled cocktail or coupé glass. If you serve it built, you can soften the edges a bit by adding a splash of water (or more) at the end.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
