Absinthe Recipes

Absinthe recipeWhen the customer doesn't specify any particular style of service, use this vintage Absinthe recipe:


Pour one pony of Absinthe into large Bar glass and let ice cold water drip from the Absinthe glass into Bar glass until full. The Absinthe glass has a hole in the center. By filling the bowl of the Absinthe glass partly with Shaved Ice, and the rest with water, the water will be ice cold as it drops from the Absinthe glass.
