Day 10 of 12 Drinks of Christmas!! New Years Day Brings Out the Adventurous Spirits!
It’s New Year’s Day and maybe you had a few too many cocktails last night or maybe you didn’t have enough. Maybe you are tired of something sweet, and want — or need– a change of pace.
Try this cocktail from Lucid, a high end brand of absinthe. It’s just different enough to be interesting, and it’s not overly sweet but there is a touch of sweetness to it — as you would find in any garden, The cucumber gives it a freshness that is illuminating and changes the absinthian flavor.
Van Gogh’s Garden
1 ½ oz. LUCID
½ oz. simple syrup
Muddle two cucumber wheels & two peeled Kiwi wheels with the simple syrup in a double rocks glass.
Fill with ice and add the Lucid. Top with Club Soda and add an un-peeled Kiwi wheel on the rim
