We’re still in the middle of February but these last two days have been unseasonably warm for Buffalo (nearly 50°F) and, although we’ll be returning to colder temperatures by tomorrow, I’m feeling inspired by this momentary thaw. So inspired, in fact, I’ve got a hankering for a springtime cocktail.
Toss mint leaves into a shaker with simple syrup and lime wedge. Muddle well. Add absinthe then fill halfway with ice and add the pineapple juice. Shake it up well and pour the whole thing into a highball glass, making sure to include the mint leaves and lime wedge. Top with Fever Tree Bitter Lemon and enjoy.
