Ash recently worked with us to create a series of truly delightful cocktails, bringing out the best in La Fée Absinth Bohemian & NV Absinthe Verte.  Using a diverse range of ingredients to compliment the bold flavours, these cocktails hugely impressed when we tasted them at the Sahara Bar.


 
Mon Petite Salut

40ml La Fée Absinth Bohemian
20ml Fresh Lemon Juice
20ml Vanilla Syrup
15ml Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
4 dashes Peychaud's Bitters

Shake all ingredients hard with ice until your shaker is nice and frosty, then strain into a chilled coupette, with a twist of fresh lemon zest to finish

Ash has a barrel aged a batch of this particular cocktail, which is proving very popular at Sahara Bar, Reading.

Going Underground

1 Egg White
40ml La Fée Absinth Bohemian
10ml Orgeat Syrup
2 dashes Bitter Truth Orange Bitters
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
SimpleSyrup to taste (optional)

Shake all ingredients hard with ice, then fine strain into a separate shaker, allowing you to shake again with no ice (dry shake) which gives the drink a wonderfully aerated consistency.  Pour into a chilled Martini glass with an orange peel twist to garnish.
