So, while I was looking for something new to try tonight, I came across this, and had to try it. (sorry it’s not a Tiki Drink … but they can’t all be heaven’s nectar … )
It’s called a Waldorf, and it’s pretty good.
Rinse a coupe glass with Absinthe, and set aside. Mix together 2oz of rye, 3/4oz of sweet vermouth, and three dashes of Angostura bitters. pour in the glass and enjoy!
Okay … I’m a Martini man. I freely admit it. Traditional, original, whatever. I also like Absynth. A lot. So imagine my interest when I come across a recipe for an Absynth Martini! (Thank you Pinterest)
Make your Martini as you usually do … then ad 1/4oz (or less!) of Absynth. Amazingly good. I’m sure it has something to do with the botanicals or booze fairies … I don’t know … I’ve had three and need a nap. If you don’t like it, throw it out and have a MaiTai. No one needs to know, and I won’t tell!
