I’ve made my love of champagne cocktails pretty well known by this point, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to shut up about it. This pretty little thing is not your average vodka cocktail—it’s got kick thanks to a dash or three of Pernod Absinthe. Champagne and Absinthe (a la Death in the Afternoon) always have the potential to be amazing.
I’d like to try swapping in Cranberry puree for the Raspberry this Thanksgiving. What do you think?
1 part Absolut Vodka
½ part Raspberry Puree
3 dashes Pernod Absinthe
Champagne to top
Shake and strain first three ingredients into a flute. Top with champagne. Garnish with a raspberry.
