If there is an easy drinking absinthe recipe for a hot day, the absinthe frappé is that recipe. The crushed ice makes it super chill, the flavor is that of absinthe without any alcohol aggression and a nice sweet note like a jelly bean. A black jelly bean.
People remember the sazerac but they seem to leave the absinthe frappé in the dust… keep hope alive, show off one of the recipes that changes New Orleans and the absinthe movement. Perhaps the recipe fell away after absinthe was banned. But, it’s back with vengeance so make a cocktail.
