Apologies if this is listed elsewhere, it sort of came up in a discussion with another noder & we were sort of claiming it as our new invention, but if anyone else get there first...sorry.

A simple way to make absinthe palatable, and of course, being absinthe a simple way to get mullered. I've used ratios because that way you can make as little or as much as you want.

You will need:

3 parts Absinthe
2 parts Lemon juice
1 part triple sec

Put all the above into a cocktail shaker and surprise, surprise: shake. Pour into a chilled glass. You should end up with a very icy green liquid. Call it something along the lines of snowman or permafrost if you think it needs a name.

Pernod Drip
The Classic Preparation

1 1/2 0z. Absinthe
1 sugar cube
crushed or cracked ice

*Use a tea strainer (unless you can find an absinthe spoon, good luck!) over an old fashioned glass.
First pour the absinthe into the glass then place the strainer, with sugar cube inside over the glass.
Pack a mound of your ice atop the sugar. When the ice has melted, the drip is ready. For those with no patience, cold water
can be slowly poured over the strainer until the sugar is gone and the glass is full (this however makes for a weaker drink).*
