    Absinthe Poor Man's Cocaine

    Absinthe Poor Man's Cocaine


    Mixologist Jared Williams pours the Poor Man's Cocaine as a layered shot then the Flat Liner cocktail. Both of these drinks share the same basic ingredients. In fact, the Poor Man's Cocaine is essentially a shot version of the Flat Liner.

    These are both delicious coffee based cocktails with a serious kick. They are truly a treat for the senses. Not only do they taste nice and look great, but the aroma is wonderful and the texture is interesting as well.

    The Poor Man's Cocaine is a shot and is meant to be drunk as one. That is consumed in a single gulp. The Absinthe Flat Liner is like a time bomb in your mouth with a surprise flavor explosion after about twenty seconds.

    Poor Man's Cocaine - Shot
    We used Kübler in this video but you can use most Swiss, Bohemian, or American cocktail style brands for this (you can experiment with the French brands but the bitter flavor might be too much)

    1/2 shot absinthe
    1/2 shot coffee liquor
    Float of Baileys Irish Cream
    1 pinch of coffee grounds

    Build cocktail in mixing tin with ice.
    1/2 shot absinthe
    1/2 shot coffee liquor (Kahlua)

    Shake and strain into shot glass
    Float Baileys on top.

    Drop a pinch of coffee grounds on top for texture and flavor.

    Flat Liner - Cocktail
    Jared used Le Tourment Vert Absinthe in this video. Tourment is a brand that was made specifically for cocktail recipes and does not separate when shaken.

    1 shot Le Tourment Vert absinthe
    1 teaspoon powdered sugar (or one quarter ounce bar syrup)
    2 shots espresso
    1/2 shot coffee liquor
    1/2 shot Baileys Irish Cream
    Float cream

    Build cocktail in mixing tin with ice.
    1 shot absinthe
    1 teaspoon powdered sugar (or one quarter ounce bar syrup)
    2 shots espresso
    1/2 shot coffee liquor (Kahlua)
    1/2 shot Baileys Irish Cream

    Shake vigorously strain into glass over ice.
    Float cream

    Absinthe Mojito

    Absinthe Mojito

    The Mojito was invented in Cuba in the middle of the 17th century. Traditionally made with rum, lime, sugar, mint, and soda water.

    This is a substitute recipe, which means we are listing a common Mojito recipe but feel free to simply substitute Le Tourment Vert absinthe for rum in your own favorite Mojito recipe. You can try mixing in Kübler, La Fee, or perhaps even Obsello or another brand but for this we believe that Le Tourment Vert gives the best results as the anise in most brands tends not to mix well with the mint and lime.

    1 Shot Le Tourment Vert absinthe
    Juice from 1/2 a lime
    1 tablespoon sugar (or half an ounce of bar syrup)
    Several sprigs of mint.
    Club soda
    7UP

    Lightly muddle the mint in your mixing tin
    add lime juice
    1 Shot Le Tourment Vert Absinthe
    add Sugar

    Shake well then strain over ice into a highball glass.
    Get a bit of the muddled mint in the mix for presentation
    Top with soda and 7UP
    Garnish with lime

    Notes: There is no dearth of recipes for Mohito Cocktails pick one you like then substitute Le Tourment Vert for rum and enjoy.

    Extra note: We don't want to sound like a commercial for any one brand of absinthe. We believe that you should experiment. We try to let you know when we think one brand mixes better in a particular recipe than another. Good luck.

    Interesting. I believe that absinthe is making quite a comback after decades of leisure and vacany. Some independent producers are recreating this intoxicating beverage in a much higher quality than it might have been 100 years ago. Quite popular {and seemingly affordable for re-fashion} amongst certain sets.

    Traditionally, absinthe is prepared by placing a sugar cube on top of a specially designed slotted spoon and then placing the spoon on the glass which has been filled with a shot of absinthe. Ice-cold water is then poured or dripped over the sugar cube so that the water is slowly and evenly displaced into the absinthe until the drink is diluted to a ratio between 3:1 and 5:1. During this process, the components that are not soluble in water mainly those from anise, fennel, and star anise come out of solution and cloud the drink. The resulting milky opalescence is called the louche ,opaque or cloudy.The addition of water is important because it causes the herbs to blossom and brings out many of the flavours originally over-powered by the anise.
