LOVE the Molecular Mixology Kits. This is right up my personal tastebud and mixology alley!
What is a Molecular Mixology Kit?
Just the coolest toy you can bring to the party! It’s either one flavor of a cocktail with details within that cocktail that you can present in different ways like tiny flavor beads, or one large cocktail bubble or a flavored foam. This is about being willing to experiment.
Find these cool kits and toys at Uncommon Goods. The kits range from $30 to $85.00. Worth the fun and playtime!!
Now for the cocktails!! Tis the season to be trying new spirits and I am just the person to bring them to you! The spirit of the day is Lucid Absinthe! Not your typical spirit/liqueur but something more extraordinary. Not everyone will like it but some will and that’s what you want– those who walk on the high wire of spirits!
Lucid Cranberry Sauce
1 oz. Lucid Absinthe
2 oz. apple cider
1 oz. cranberry juice
½ oz. Chambord
Granny Smith apple slice for garnish
Combine Lucid Absinthe, apple cider and cranberry juice in a shaker over ice and shake well. —
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Drop the Chambord to the bottom of the glass.
Skewer Granny Smith apple wedge on a pick and lay lengthwise across the edge of the glass.
If you like that kind of drink then this next one will probably suit you as well!
Lucid Gingerbread Man
1 oz. Lucid Absinthe
½ oz. demerara sugar syrup (or simple syrup)
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
¼ oz. green chartreuse
Dash of freshly grated cinnamon
Dash of freshly grated nutmeg
In a mixing glass, muddle 3 dials of fresh ginger.
Shake thoroughly with ice, then strain over fresh ice in a highball glass.
Garnish with a small Christmas tree gingerbread cookie
Plus I am going to give you some Jingle Juice– not made with Lucid but it’s definitely in the spirit!!
2 oz. Van Gogh Vodka. ( you have your choice of several fruit-flavored vodkas from Van Gogh like citroen, oranje, melon and pomegranate)
2 oz. orange juice (freshly squeezed or extracted!)
¼ oz. fresh lemon juice

All three cocktails are tasty and have a very distinctive flavor profile!
